Did you know that the number of bookshelves in your home can predict your kid’s success at school?

A study by a team of Stanford and University of Munich researchers shows that parents who own two bookshelves raise kids who do better in school. Whoa.

And with that, here’s why you should absolutely read books out loud to babies.


Do you still read paperbacks and hardcovers or do you rely on tablets and e-readers?

  1. Thanks for sharing, Jennifer! I completely agree. I suppose I’m one of those old fashioned women; I like to feel a book in my hands and turn paper pages. I always loved reading to my own children, and I’m loving reading to my grandson now too. 🙂

    • I’m the same way. We’re big readers in my family and I can recall my mom giving me her Fun with Dick & Jane and Nancy Drew books. I hope I can pass along my affinity to Declan. And, I’m wondering how long I have to wait before I can start reading Harry Potter books to him…I’m so looking forward to it!
