Bedtime Book BasketPosted: May 5, 2010
I am not sure where I got this idea… maybe a stroke of genesis…. probably not!
I started this when Trey was about 6 months old. I put a basket of books and toys in his crib. When he was younger I tied it to the side of the rail. Now I just place the small basket in the corner of his crib. I fill it with little books, cars or soft little toys.
Anyway, this has proved to be a WONDERFUL thing for us! Most days when I put him down for a nap he sits and reads. He usually falls asleep by reading. In the am he usually wakes up and plays for about 30 mins before crying out for me to come get him. This was particularly wonderful when I was pregnant and exhausted!
It has given him an interest in books and love for literature, gives me a little extra time during the day and teaches him to play on his own!
Just thought I would share : )
