If you have been reading my blog for a while or have been following my Instagram account/s, you would know how much my daughter LOVES reading her books. Ever since she was only four months old, we already gave her soft crib books with different kinds of animals, shapes, etc. and she LOVED them all!
Fast-forward to fourteen months later (HUHUHU WHERE DID THE TIME GO??? 🙁 ), she still loves to read! Here are just some of her favourite board books:
She loves reading at home; in the morning with me; at night before bedtime; sometimes even in the car (I had to avoid this because it’s bad for the eyes). She also “reads” all kinds of materials now and even loves those Sofia the First Disney magazines I buy monthly!
Note: Just to clarify, my daughter is only 18 months old and when I say “read”, of course it only means she loves scanning the pages of the books, looking at illustrations, and listening intently to her mama or dada who actually read the stories to her.
Anyhow, I just want to share a pleasant discovery with all of you. Aside from reading her usual board books and kiddie magazines, my daughter has a new fondness for…(take a guess!) her First Bible! Yes! A Bible for kids! I bought this cute and brilliant kid-friendly literature two months ago from the US. I did not think she would appreciate it until she’s about two years old, but lo and behold, she loves hearing the short poetry accompanying each Bible illustration. She would shriek in joy upon seeing the pages with Baby Jesus and Baby Moses! How cute! 🙂
Getting acquainted with the Bible at an early age is something I have always wanted for my child. Not just because of religion, but because there are truly wonderful stories in it with great lessons to learn!
I highly recommend this beautiful well-written kiddie literature. It’s very light and inspiring and will not overwhelm children with the usual lengthy narratives in the Bible. It’s a wonderful keepsake too. Read from the heart and you’ll be surprised at how your child would respond.
Happy reading! 🙂
