I have always been an avid reader and I also read while I nursed my son. Probably he took it from me; he was so interested in books than his cars or Lego blocks.
When we started to have limited screen time after he turned two, there were on and off periods of reading. And to wean him off the screen time, we went back to the books. And it worked liked a charm.
This morning, I saw him cuddle up and observe a picture book for good ten minutes. I did not want to interrupt him, I was so delighted to watch him read.
I have always found pleasure in reading and most of the days I have gone to sleep with a book in my hands. I hope my son also finds his comfort in books and believes that books are one of the best things that had happened to this world.
I have put a list of books which we have read and which are on our wish list after going through all the book reviews.
If you are a new mom/ or trying to introduce books to your lil one, then this guide should get you started on this.
If you are already reading to your lil book lover, then list your favorite ones in the comments section so that I could add them to the list for the newbies 🙂
What I love about Tulika books are that they are Indianised and the child could easily relate to the characters and the background scenes happening on the book. That said, Tulika’s logo is a crow. You get the drift? 😉
