The following post was originally written 4 years ago for Summer 2014 Campaign. It's worth repeating.
I am excited to include information about Usborne Books & More, courtesy of Samantha Boyd,
Teacher and Usborne Books & More Consultant!
Hope you enjoy your Summer of Reading!
(Sometimes I took my baby to work with me and kept her entertained with lots of books while she had tummy time.
This is my baby now reading to a family friend.)

Books encourage a love for words. Literature facilitates how we learn new concepts, increases vocabulary, and exposes us to differing viewpoints. As a child, reading allowed me to fantasize about travel, relationships, and my future adventures. I learned about different cultures and value systems outside of my circle of knowledge. Books helped me grow and explore.

I devoured all genres and pushed myself to see how many pages I could turn over each day before I had no choice but to close my eyes from exhaustion. Summer Times were my personal challenge and I could easily deplete my selections for the week in record time. I took my books in the car, to the park, and while I sat outside basking in the warmth of the Virginia Beach sun.
Books hold a special place in my heart, so naturally I decided to include my favorite activity in an effort to share this love. I signed on to be a Partner for "Read Aloud 15 Minutes" because I believe this campaign has value.
I remember taking my daughter to work with me when she was four months old and I had some office work to accomplish. I placed a blanket on the floor near my desk and placed her on her tummy with books fanned out around her. She loved looking at the books as she practiced lifting her head. Her smiles and coos indicated that she was captivated by the illustrations. That was her introduction to books in addition to her nightly story time. My Administrative Assistant walked in and remarked, "Gee, you're starting early with her."
Try out a few hard back books from Usborne Books & More to get you started with your baby's "tummy time" on a blanket. When baby gets fussy, try turning the pages or rearranging the books. You can add a few soft toys for reaching too. When you notice baby getting tired or looking away, then it's time to pack up until next time.
Summer Time is a great time to add books to your baby bag, backpack, or picnic basket. Books are pretty portable. Take a couple to baby's doctor's appointments, church, grocery store, or car ride. Don't be surprise if baby falls asleep with her/his favorite book while seated in baby bouncy chair or car seat. It can be relaxing!
