I have always been a big fan of giving children books, whether they are old enough to read or not. It is never too early to encourage learning and the love of reading. Children who are read to and who love to read tend to do better in school and love to learn more than children who were not read to. My home was always filled with books for my children when they were growing up. There are several Julius Jr. books to pick from, too. Depending on what age your child may be, they can get creative with paints or crayons, or peek behind doors flaps to discover who may be hiding there.
Priced at $4.99, this is a rythmic, rhyming book, that pairs text with picture clues to help children decode the story. For children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading.
