Enjoy Reading

Watch as this Scottish grandmother barrels with laughter while reading to her grand baby. Her laughter is truly infectious! If she continues to read like this, her grandchild will surely grow to love reading.

If you choose to watch the 2nd video (which is highly recommended), you will see the child's eyes track the pages and make faces in amazement as the grandmother reads. Be encouraged to read picture books to your children and show them the enjoyment that can come from reading.
