What to Expect...When Reading to Your Child {Tips for Parents}

When I say the words, "What To Expect When You're Expecting"...what do you think of? The book, right? Me, too!  But did you know there is a What to Expect website, with tons of free, helpful resources for parents with children through age 5.  

Recently, I was asked to be a guest blogger for the site, What to Expect, on the Word of Mom blog. So, as you can imagine, I wrote about something near and dear to my literacy heart...reading to your children.   The guest blog post went live yesterday and you can read it over HERE. 

In addition, I took a short informal poll of the Hello Literacy Facebook readers and asked them to recommend their one all-time favorite picture book. Here's what they had to say:
