We are surrounded by books in our home, and every night, our children read, are read to, or listen to an audiobook. We also check out audiobooks to listen to in the car when we travel. The best new thing we have added is Tuesday Tea and Poetry, where we sit for tea at 3 and take turns reading poetry out loud. We started about a month ago and my daughter, who is 8, started writing her own poetry and shares it during tea time. My children look forward to this each week. (Partly for the treats that we share with it!) This idea came from Julie Bogart's Bravewriter.
