My boys absolutely love books and so I am often introducing new books to them and reading to them when I can. With summer break from school we just joined our library’s summer reading program and my boys have loved tracking all the books they read. We just started reading a new chapter book series aloud that has been a bit hit with my boys, “My Father’s Dragon.” I have to say, though, our favorite story for bedtime is “Danny and the Dinosaur.” It’s a book that I like reading even if they pick the same story over and over and my kids never seem to tire of it either. They book is not overdone with too much text so my kids stay interested and always loving hearing about the adventure Danny goes on around his town with his dinosaur! Their favorite part is when the children all gather to play Hide-and-Seek with the Dinosaur! Reading has been a great way to stay connected with my children and I feel it is an important part of childhood.
OshKosh B’gosh along with USO is helping to support military families to keep children close to family members that may be serving away from home. Their special United Through Reading program let’s military parents record videos they can send to loved ones at nearly 200 locations worldwide including on access for unites on ships, tents, bases, and installations and at 70 USO centers. Already, 1.5 Million military parents, spouses and children have been able to benefit from this program since it began. Now, with the United Through Reading Program, deployed military parents can read children’s books aloud via DVD for their children to watch at home. This is a great way for children to stay connected with family members that are away from home. Now, you can help OshKosh B’gosh and the United Through Reading program by liking the OshKosh B’gosh Facebook Fan Page!
