If you want to make more meaningful and lasting connections with your kids through books in the coming year, then I have a tip for you:
Don’t try to read aloud every day.
Not what you thought I would say? Well, then. You’d better listen to the rest.
This episode of the podcast is the shortest yet– and maybe the most important. It’s only 8 minutes long.
You’ll find out…
- Why you don’t need to read aloud to your kids every single day
- My simple technique for feeling good about getting to important things I get to… most days
- What you won’t regret at the end of this year
Remember– reading for just 10 minutes every other day amounts to 30 hours each year. That’s an amazing amount of reading aloud!
To remind yourself of all of those 10-minute mini-wins, download the calendar below and put it somewhere visible (like your fridge).
Get the 2019 Year-at-a-Glance Calendar
Print it out and mark an x each day that you read aloud 10 minutes or more
At the end of the year, you’ll have a lot of x’s worth celebrating- even if you don’t share books with your kids quite as often as you hoped.
This calendar will help you count it.
Here’s to a year of meaningful and lasting connections with our kids. We’re rooting for you!
