One thing I have done with my kids since they were babies is read to them every single night. We read during the day when there is opportunity but without fail, I always prioritize about 30 minutes of reading time at night.
Even now, my 8 year old still loves for her dad and I to read to her even though she is a proficient reader herself.
I found that if I enjoyed the book I was reading then they enjoyed the book. If I laughed they laughed and so on.
So, I am always on the search for a fun book to read to my kids.
Some of our favorites
Little Critter Series
Magic TreeHouse Series
Amercian Girl books
The Little's Series
The Secret Garden
