I am a strong believer in reading to a child as a baby. As the baby develops into a child and young adult, they should also witness you, the adult, reading -- lead by example. My grandchildren were introduced to "Magic Tree House" prior to entering daycare. As they developed their own reading skills, Magic Tree has become part of their home library. I encourage parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles, introduce Magic Tree House to your "little-ones".
