“There are three things I’ll always do . . . love you, hug you, read to you!” The simple promise of togetherness offered in this board book is enhanced by interactive prompts throughout, encouraging parents to engage with their child while reading. Studies show that asking questions, like the ones in this book, helps children learn to read faster than if they just listen to a story. Love and literacy are gifts we can give to our children every day! Also available as a bilingual (Spanish and English) edition entitled Te Amo, te Abrazo, leo contigo!
As a parent, I like that just reading this book is a subtle reminder to love more, hug more and read more. I also like that on each page there are questions that you can ask your child and it’s a nice reminder to stop and talk about books and not just read through them.
