Kids love it when you read to them even after they have learned to read by themselves.
In addition to training your kids to sit still and listen to your voice, reading out loud to your kids will fill their heads with images and stories that will provide a ton of common ground and conversation-starters.
See below for some great books to read aloud to your kids. I guarantee you will enjoy them, too.
The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis
Beautiful and thought-provoking, this is the gold standard of read-alouds. It's fanciful and compelling while it introduces kids to mythic themes. You will love reading it to them.
