Love Books Have fun reading books you and your child enjoy.


Snuggle Stories

Our busy toddlers may not be snuggling for stories as much as they did when they were babies, but they want to snuggle sometimes! Keep a few short, snuggly books on hand for when your little one is in the mood to cuddle with you on the couch. Keep your snuggle stories short and repetitive, and respect his need to move on quickly. Enjoy those snuggle stories!
