Since he was born, we have been reading story and picture books to J. Every night, there would be a stipulated time where we would sit him down and flip through the pages of a few books. Taking time to explain the pictures to him was also part of the routine.
We realised that as time passed, J developed a love towards reading and looking at pictures in books. He would take a book or two and sit in his rocker, before turning the pages to view his favourite pictures. He would name the pictures aloud as he came across familiar objects and animals.
Pay off time? I think so. =) I’m really thankful that till today, we’ve not introduced him to the smart phone apart from viewing pictures and videos taken of him and family members. This will continue to be the norm till it is time for J to pick up IT skills, probably when he is about six.
His mercies are new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness!
