Tender Reads for Tiny Tots

June is about grads, dads and scads of summer fun. It’s the month that recognizes the dads and father figures in our lives.

One of the favorite things dads love to do is read bedtime stories to their children and grandchildren. Reading to our children at an early age can instill a deep love for books. Storybooks are great learning tools that can have a profoundly positive influence on children now and in the future. Once young ones discover and explore engaging books with enchanting stories, they will be eager to have the same story read over and over and enjoy being introduced to new stories. Choosing a subject can make all the difference whether a child warms up to storybooks and reading. Warm and tender reads offer a feel-good vibe that even young tots instinctively resonate with. Here are two stories that kids of all ages and parents will love to have as part of their family library.

It’s the perfect book for a baby shower and to welcome a new arrival in the family. secret code: snuggle bunny.
