I love to have story time with my ds3 and ds5 after lunch. I like to read them a story book and then some sort of rhyme, poetry, or prayer etc, book. A few weeks ago, I stumbled across this little gem on my very own bookshelf. Nursery Rhymes that have a christian twist to them. The boys love it! We sing the nursery rhymes to their tunes, too. These are so easy for them to memorize. I have no clue when or where I bought this (you would understand if you knew how many books we own), but the price tag says 1.00 on it. What a total blessing.
Here is an example of one my boys favorite.....
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
Humpty Dumpty shouted, "Amen!
God can put me together again."
Each day I read several pages and reread several of their favorites. It's a true joy to hear them sing. And not to mention the sweet cuddling time we encounter each afternoon. What precious memories.
Do you have a favorite read a loud that you and your children admire? I would love to hear what works for you.
