During Valentines month, make reading a Valentine experience. Cut out or decorate a supply of Valentine-themed bookmarks for your family. Give "Reading Valentines" to each other by marking pages you think a specific family member would enjoy or laugh about. Write a "to" and "from" message on the Reading Valentine markers and leave the books out for your "Reading Valentine" to find and read. (Suggest this idea to your child's teacher or school librarian, as well!)
Chocolate! Just hearing the word chocolate makes us imagine its alluring smell, tempting taste, and creamy texture. Enter the magic world of chocolate together. You might want to maintain a small supply of treats to go along with reading these chocolate-filled treasures. Remember: books have no calories!
