There are so many reasons why reading aloud to your kids is one of the best things you can do for them. Just a few reasons include: it helps with vocabulary and language development, fosters a love of books and reading, and helps children learn to focus and pay attention!
For those reasons, we recommend starting off the holiday season with books.
