Can you tell my DH? I say can you read in front of the children to show them you like it ....... he invariably says "I read on the train". How does that answer my request I wonder? Need to get a new one that reads at home.
Sometimes I think it's best for these things to be left to us...my DH will either enthusiastically grab all the books from the freebie table at the train station and hand out " Jaws " to DD and a gory picture book depicting war field surgery to the boys and then complain when they look horrified or go to the other extreme and fall asleep after 30 seconds of listening to them read..apparently it's the monotone which sets him off
I've found that reading a variety of books helps your child find something they can really get to grips with..my DS is really into the Michael Morpurgo books at the moment , but that took a lot of experimenting !
