  1. Funny to find your blog just a couple days after experiencing my first reading to our little one in the womb. I am 17 weeks pregnant and don’t have any baby/childrens books to read to the baby yet. Wanting to start our nursery book collection I started searching online for books other expectant mommies have found best to start reading hoping I could also find a couple online for now. And to my surprise I stumbled across “Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See” and excitment runs through me because this was one of my favorites in a was younger. I read it aloud a couple times and on the third time reading/slightly singing to it (with a story like Brown Bear you just have to sing to it) I felt for the very first time the feeling of little tiny butterflies in my belly fluttering around. And I knew it was our little bundle of joy kicking and moving around. Being a first time Mom I didnt expect to feel the baby atleast for a few more weeks. All I know whether it was reading to the baby that caused this very special moment or not this book became the first of many to our babies nursery book collection. I had to go out right away and buy the book from Barnes and Noble. =)


    1. Dear Ashley,
      Thank you so much for sharing your exciting experience. Brown Bear, Brown Bear is one of our favorites, too! It’s perfect for reading to your little baby–lots of rhyming, rhythm and repetition. Please keep us posted as you continue to share this special time with your little bundle of joy. We want to hear all about it! This lucky baby is getting such a great start in life and it’s only going to get better!


  2. I grew up with my Dad reading bed time stories to me. I know it helped me be a better learner and a smarter student but best of all, it’s one of those memories that I will never forget!
