I think we can all agree that reading books to children is important for so many reasons. As early childhood educators and professionals, we are constantly reading books throughout the day to children – infants all the way up to school age children and beyond. In fact, some of my favorite memories of school are when my teachers read stories to me. I remember my fifth- grade teacher reading The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scienszka and Lane Smith. My memory of that book was so impressed on my mind that as an adult when I found the book in mint condition at a thrift store, I couldn’t pass up buying it and entertaining my youngest daughter with it!
