Setting an hour each day to sit down with your children and read stories together is a wonderful bonding activity. Take time out to discuss the stories and the valuable lessons behind each tale once they’re done reading. It’s very important that they understand the essence of each story so they can apply these lessons of love, understanding and generosity later on.
