Our children's brains develop so rapidly before the age of 5. It is so important to read aloud to them to develop language and instill value in the printed word. Take two minutes to watch this video of Dr. Hutton, a pediatrician and researcher, as he speaks to way your child's brain develops and the importance of reading aloud to them every day....long past the age of 5!!
In addition to reading, I love to play competitive tennis; hike & camp in the mountains; garden and create outdoor art; walk Mocha, my chocolate lab; visit my son in NYC; and learn new things!
