Summer is a perfect time to share books with your children! Listen to books while driving to your summer destination. A couple of added benefits are the conversations you have with your children as well as keeping the driver awake!
Cuddle with your children while you read a great story. Asking questions about what they think will happen next; if you were the main character, what would you do? etc.
