Under the Covers
Winter days may be shorter, but winter nights are cuddlier! Cozy up with your child and enjoy hot cocoa and a story! Nightly reading doesn’t just provide an opportunity for bonding between parent and child. Neuroscientists have theorized that reading bedtime stories also decreases cortisol levels in children, thereby lowering their stress levels. Not to mention, snuggling up with a parent to read in a quiet, calming environment helps children associate reading with comfort and fun, increasing the likelihood that they will continue to enjoy reading throughout their lives. This winter, curl up under the covers with your child and read! You can find a wide selection of books at tinyreaderspublishing.com.
