"I am not a very good reader.... Am I really the best person to read to my child?"

Posted by:

You are your child's first and most important teacher.  Don't ever forget that. Most children's pictures books are written between a 3rd and 5th grade level. You do not need to read all of the words,  There are 2 stories; one from the author and one from the illustrator. Read the pictures to your child.  Make-up your own names from the characters. Have them do some actions on each page.  Give your story a beginning, middle, and an end. They are benefiting from your reading.  Your child will not even know that you are not reading the words.
