    The most important thing we can do for our grandchildren (Sponsored post)

    This post sponsored by Sandvik Media in collaboration with The GRANDparent Network.

    grandparents and grandchildren love books

    The most important thing we can do for our grandchildren is much simpler than you might expect. Parents these days know all about the dangers of “screen time” and the technology overload that kids now face. It's hard being a parent today, but there's something us grandparents can do to help. Our strategy is to surround the grandkids with the best books for their age, read to them every chance we get, and nurture their natural curiosity.

    The research validates the obvious; that reading skills are essential to academic and professional success, and the biggest predictor of literacy is how much exposure kids have to books when they are little!

    We were recently introduced to Early Moments, an awesome resource that is new to us but has been in business for over 45 years. They send the best classic children’s books to our grandkids each month, and they know just what’s right for every age.

    Zero to two years old? Baby Einstein Playful Discoveries program offers bold, bright board books and soft books for your youngest grandbabies. For little Disney fans, the Wonderful World of Reading classics are perfect. And for your little ones prepping for pre-school, trust Elmo’s Learning Adventure stories and learning materials.

    Early Moments recommends my all-time favorite, Dr. Seuss and His Friends for all ages as well. These stories make the most memorable read-alouds, and young readers can step into reading on their own for the first time with classic titles like Hop on Pop, Green Eggs and Ham, and Cat in the Hat, all shipped directly to their door, monthly.

    Every year, Dr. Seuss’s birthday is celebrated, alongside Read Across America Day on March 2nd. There’s no better time to start your grandkids on a journey to future success, and LOTS of read-aloud fun, with awesome Early Moments book subscriptions.

    The Early Moments team really are experts in the field of childhood literacy, so when they remind us Why Reading to Children Is So Important, we listen! It’s up to us to see that the next generation gets the right start in life, and collecting a library of amazing books with Early Moments is an easy way to begin.

    I do wish I had known about this when Amara was young. Reading is so important!
