I love reading to my daughter! She just turned two and a half, and we probably read to her about one hour a day. She has a mountain of books, loves "reading" and playing on her own, but she particularly loves when we read to her. She's even memorised a lot of the words from her books and recites them randomly throughout the day.

FUN FACT: We are part of the 1000 books before school program, which is really neat. You log the books you've read to your child online, and every 100 books they get a badge.
Going to the library, checking the books out, reading and logging them has become a fun little exercise for us to do together.
Hope you enjoy this list. Comment below with your favourite titles!
This little corner of the internet is for non-yoga topics like motherhood, low-tox living and green beauty products I love.
