Since he was tiny, my kid has loved books. I don't know if it's the snuggling that accompanies it, the stories, the pictures, our voices... whatever it is, he can sit and listen to four or five books at a time. We do it everyday before his nap and every evening before he goes to bed. He is getting to an age where he likes to pick the books out, and has most of them memorized so that he can "read" them to us. It's little moments like this that completely make my day.
One story in particular is requested almost daily. It's to the point that he recites parts of it when we're driving because he thinks it's so funny. And we love it, too. It is a cute story with great illustrations.
If you don't already have it, get it. It is good for toddlers probably through age 5.
So this is just a time out to remind you to grab some quality time with your kid(s). They will cherish your undivided attention, and it will bring peace to your day. Whether it's reading, coloring together, singing, playing a game - give them your all for a little snippet of their day - they'll thank you for it (eventually).
