bedtime stories

Is there anything more romanticized in parenting or childhood than the bedtime story? It’s so very sweet. I think my kids may even enjoy it more now than they did when they were little.

In the latest episode of Adventures in Learning we talk about literacy and cover why something as simple as reading to kids is so important.

I’ll admit I’m biased, but the whole thing turned out super charming. As the kids watched it last night, Jonah sighed and said, “That was fun.” I’m like, dude, I read to you every night. Guess there’s just something about seeing it on camera that adds a bit of extra romance. ;)

After you watch, hop on over to PBS Parents to read 10 Tips for Raising a Confident Reader. There are some really good studies to back up the importance of reading for pleasure and having lots of books around the house. In short, researchers say it makes you smart. Aww yeah…


By the way, I did some math and our videos have been watched over 20,000 times. That’s nuts! I hope you guys like them and please help continue to spread the word. This series been so much fun to put together. Can you believe we only have six more videos to go?

Oh and if you have any questions about something you’ve seen in any of the videos, please feel free to send them my way. I’d love to hear from you!

    So charming, but do you have any tips for the adults on how to stay awake while reading?! Five minutes in and I struggle to keep my eyes open!
