Grown-up Tip:  Reading to your child before bed each night is a great way to foster a love for reading. You can start this bedtime tradition when your child is an infant and as they learn to read, they can start reading bedtime stories to you. This is a wonderful way to bond with your child and unwind at the end of a long and eventful day.
