Reading with your children is vitally important for their success, both in academics and in life. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is recommended that parents read to their parents each and every day (even to newborns)! The Healthy Children Organization offers parents great tips for reading to and with children of all ages. To celebrate National Family Literacy Day, Kolcraft staff members are sharing their favorite books to read with their children!
- Brent, Kolcraft’s graphic artist, loves to read his 2 year old daughter Time For Bed by Mem Fox. The book’s soothing rhymes and beautiful illustrations are perfect for bedtime. Another of his daughter’s favorites is Miss Spiders New Car by David Kirk.
- Sam, one of Kolcraft’s engineers, enjoyed reading Mr. Brown can Moo! Can you? by Dr. Seuss to his kids when they were little. The antics of Mr. Brown are fun for young children learning their sounds. Another family favorite is The Napping House by Audrey Wood.
- Hyon, the head of Kolcraft’s fashion team, has two daughters who love to read magical Disney princess stories. Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson is another of her daughters’ favorite books. Young kids will love the hilarious tale of woodland creatures and a hibernating bear.
- Shannen, Kolcraft’s resident stroller guru, loves to read her son Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems. Her son also enjoys reading Baseball by Murray Books. This fun fact-filled book is shaped like a baseball and is sure to delight any young sports fan.
