I have made a point of reading to my children since they were very young babies in the hope of improving their language skills, imagination and, when they are older, the love for reading. It looks like it has paid of, in so far as, they LOVE books. They love people reading to them, they love playing with them and looking through the pictures.
Our children started travelling with us when they were only a few weeks old. Having family spread across the world (Porto, London, USA) means that we take regular plane trips to see them and the holiday season is no exception. Every year we spend Christmas either in London (where my husband’s parents live) or Porto (where my parents live). This year, we are going to spend Christmas in London and New Year’s in Porto.
