Reading aloud to my babies

My second guest post over at Joanne Jacobs' blog riffs off of one of Diana Senechal's guest posts about reading to babies from birth:

First of all, I found this rather surprising as I didn’t realize the policy was new. I think I remember being told by University of Virginia (of all places) pediatricians shortly after the birth of each of my children (I have fraternal twin boys and a younger daughter) that I should be reading to them. . . .
My husband and I generally have found reading books to our children to be pleasurable–it’s a nice way to spend quiet time close to them, and our family and friends enjoy it for the same reason. I also love many children’s books, especially the artful ones.

Please go read my thoughts in full here.
