Experts say that reading to your child, beginning at a very young age, will often instill the love of reading in them. This will serve as a foundation for future learning. As a parent or caregiver, you want to open your child's mind and imagination. Reading, even to an infant, is a great way to accomplish that goal. And some people subscribe to the theory that a child can hear you while still in the womb and will read to their unborn child.

As they grow older you will likely hear that familiar plea of "read me a story" every night at bedtime. They will often ask that you read the same book over and over, never tiring of the same story. And eventually they will get to the point where they are reciting the story to you. They may tell you that they are reading it to you, even though you know its not technically reading, don't let on that you know their "secret". This memorizing of a story does actually pave the way for reading as they learn to recognize certain words and spellings.

While you are considering your options for decorating your child's room be sure to include a bookcase or bookshelf. There are some great designs available, perhaps a firehouse bookcase for a boy or a doll house designed bookcase for your sugar and spice girl. You can start out by filling it with books you loved as a child; chances are they will love them too.
