Quarantine Reading

Hi all!

Hope you all are doing great and staying positive during this period. I am sure that many of you must be having quality time with your family and I would really like to know how you all are making use of your time productively.

So during this quarantine period, my daughter and I have been reading few books, my husband has improved his cooking skills drastically, we talk to our extended family more often and make sure everyone is safe, healthy and positive.

In this post, I would like to share about the books we have been reading and practicing together in the last month and I hope this information will be useful for parents with toddlers. My daughter loves these books and we have read them over and over again in the last month. We purchased the writing practice books from a local store and it has also been extremely useful in keeping her busy.

This one came with an erasable marker, few stickers and it’s super useful in keeping them engrossed.
This one is another excellent writing practice book to keep your little one busy and active. It helps in a great way to improve their writing skills. They also have included exercises to write and spell three-letter words, which help them in improving their reading skills.
This is one of a kind book and my little one loves it. This is from our local library and we got it almost three months ago. Our library is not functioning now and so it’s been with us for all these days and we have read this book like 50 times already.
This is really a cute story book with large font and it is very useful for introducing reading skill to children. This one is also from our library but I showed her this book just recently. She is able to recognize and read most words from this book already! So this is our current favorite!
We love watching Peppa on Tv and those episodes are available to read too! Both of us were excited to find this in our library and we enjoy reading this together just as we love watching Peppa and George on TV!
We got this book from Kohl’s on thanksgiving sale and my daughter loves reading it. This book has many fairy-tales, some funny songs and rhymes too! We sing those rhymes with tunes and she loves that. The font is also really cool and large enough to keep them glued to the book.

I hope you found these suggestions helpful and I would love to know what you and your family have been doing these days! Also, if you have some books and movie recommendations, do let me know. If you have any super cool ideas to keep these little kids busy and engrossed, please share!

    I teach a class called Family Literacy where I teach moms English at the school where their children attend. We tell the moms all the time how much it benefits children when they read to them, read with them, and listen to their children read. 🙂

      Thank you for your valuable comment and it’s so good to know that you help moms to learn English! And about that reading to kids part, I Can’t agree more!! Reading to children right from birth helps them improve their vocabulary and they start reading at a very early age!!

    Our local library is closed too – but no late fines and though I have many titles on my shelf from them, have already read and too much to do to read to myself 50 times a day – but…I loved this post, as I used to work at our local library and many of the titles you shared were similar to those we ‘circulated’ the most often – and well – here’s hoping library operations get ramped up again soon – eh? 😀

      Hey! It’s nice to know that you used to work at your local library! Yes, we can’t wait for our library to function again. My little one misses story-time and other activities for kids that we do on regular basis there!!

        Our local librarians have been doing virtual story times. That said not the same as in person!
