What is Heidi Reading? is dedicated to what our littlest worker (my 5-month-old daughter) is reading at home.
I always love when I get to read this nice short book about bedtime. While I’m getting a belly rub and a massage, my mommy and daddy read to me. They hope that this book llama, llama getting ready for bed will help me get right in the mood to (yawn) sleep… (yawn)… all through (yawn)… the… (yawn)… night. Gee, it seems to be working. Nighty, night, llama, llama. ~Heidi S.

It’s never too early to start reading to your little one. In fact, I’ve already started. I’ll admit, Heidi is better at eating the books than she is at paying attention to what her mommy or daddy is reading, but what’s important is that she is hearing our voices. By keeping the reading time short and fun, I hope that Heidi will grow up loving books just as much as me! Check back for tips, tricks and suggestions to reading to babies. Or, just look here to find out Heidi’s opinion on what we’re reading at home! ~Ms. Mary
