We are so excited that the I LOVE YOU children’s book of love and poetry, is now  available as board book.  Just like the hardback version, the board book is similar in size. These are small books measuring just under 6 inches by 6 inches – perfect for little hands to hold.

The I LOVE YOU books make perfect gifts to families with young ones as the beautiful photographs and simple words impart so much warm sentiment and love.

So as these books are bound to be family favorites,  the board book version makes sense as these are durable books. Board books are printed on thick paperboard for both the cover and the interior pages.

Little children can not only be read the book but they can also grasp and play with them, too. They will learn at a young age how books can convey stories and hopefully embark on a life long journey book appreciation.

Reading to children from the time they are babies is a good thing.  There are so many reasons why. But here are the 5 top benefits.

The shared and nurturing activity is a chance to spend quality time with the child. Closeness also helps bond or cement a very important relationship. Books such as the I LOVE YOU book is a way to reaffirm the love you have for them. (The board book version will be out in a couple of weeks in time for Christmas and the holidays)

The child learns at a very young age to appreciate books. They realize books can be a wonderful source of information and fun. Children who grow to love books often demand several re-readings of favorite books. This helps them improve memory retention and understanding. They also learn how books are read – from left to right – and that the text explains what the pictures are about.

Reading aloud to children promotes and reinforces language skills. Many studies have shown that children who were read to in their preschool years do much better academically later on. Having a good foundation of language skills is key to understanding subjects like science and so on.

Engaging with young children during reading sessions encourages them to talk and express themselves. The activity also teaches them how to interact with others through language.

Young children tend to have a short attention span. So reading to them helps them focus and concentrate. Over time, the children learn to sit still for longer periods of time. These subtle lessons in self-discipline will serve them well as they enter their school years.

The I LOVE YOU book is now available as a hardback as well as a board book making it idea for young children.
