Guess How Much I Love You and Other Children’s Books

Reading books to books to our children is an important part of raising them into adulthood. Looking back, most people will admit that they treasure those precious moments they had spent listening to their own parents reading them stories. Reading together is one of the activities that is most suited for parent-child bonding and quality time. With so many educational experts, psychologists and therapists exhorting up to spend more time with our children, we must not forget that the primary measure here is quality and not necessarily quantity. By spending a limited amount of time with our child while giving him our full attention and complete focus, we will accomplish tremendously more than by hours of half hearted presence. Children’s books and stories, such as Guess How Much I Love You, Goodnight Moon, Love You Forever and many others are an ideal tool that can be used to achieve the special feeling of closeness and bonding with our child even when we don’t have hours to spend with him.
