Won’t let me read books
My 2 year old always says “no mama, no book” when I open a book. He will do his best to close it (including sitting on it if I resist). He always wants to to play cars or something else, which I’m cool with, but you know, all the blogs and guidance say read to your kids daily. I’ve tried reading aloud while he plays as well as just sitting silently with a book, but it’s as if he is jealous of the books having my attention. (Side note: he does the same thing if I try to play an instrument.) I don’t want him to resent books if he’s not interested, yet I still want to foster a culture of reading and exploring books. I bought books that match his interests and favorite characters, but no interest beyond the cover. Any suggestions or similar experiences?
