As we raise our children, it has become very clear that keeping them engaged is important. From the crying infant eagerly gazing out a window to the 3 year old begging to color with crayons, kids need to explore, see, hear, and experiment. They want nothing more than to learn about anything and everything. That’s why, multiple times every day, we make sure to share stories. While walking in the woods we craft yarns about squirrels and their families, riding in the car we recount memories of our own childhood to our kids, and, most of all, we read books.
