My Thoughts

Picture is my daughter playing along in the “I Love School” book

We love books here in our home. Reading is so very important not just as an education but as a break, to let the mind enter new worlds and explore. I am very fortunate that my children love to read and now Storia has come my little one is loving it even more. Not only can she have the book read to her (I love that it shows her every word as it is being spoken) but she can read it back to me, and with some of her sight words in the story she is actually reading a bit back to me. There are also little activities and side games to play throughout the books on certain pages. She spends so much time with her new books on Storia that she is learning more and more everyday. Storia is a great way to learn to read and have a great time doing so. My daughter loves all her new books and I love that she is liking reading more and more everyday!

I have been given the opportunity to host a giveaway where one lucky Dirty t Shirt reader can win a $25 Storia Gift Card to add more great books to your child’s Storia library. Please see rules below to enter to win today!
