I received product from Andrews McMeel Publishing to facilitate this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
I am a huge advocate of reading books, both to and with kids. Engaging children in books from infancy has been shown to be widely beneficial. Studies have proven that growing up in a home packed with books has a large effect on literacy in later life. As a matter of fact, it’s said that you want a minimum of 80 books in your home library even! However, I know that many of us have lots more. Which is a good thing!
A paper in the journal Social Science Research says, “Adolescent exposure to books is an integral part of social practices that foster long-term cognitive competencies spanning literacy, numeracy and ICT skills,” they write. “Growing up with home libraries boosts adult skills in these areas beyond the benefits accrued from parental education or own educational or occupational attainment.”

I’m a city girl turned country by my awesome husband and we have three busy boys and two darling daughters. I love spending time with my family, reading Karen Kingsbury novels, and catching up with friends while our kiddos have play dates. I’m blessed beyond measure and can’t wait to see what God has in store.
