Mama Finishes Reading This Book To Her Adorable Little Baby. Now Watch His Unexpected Reaction!

The love of reading and being read to, is really a consequence of parents reading to babies from the time they are born.  Reinforcement of kids feeling that books are as much fun as screen time, is a matter of consistently keeping up a fun interaction with your kids and books, until it becomes intrinsically valued.

The fact that this is not happening in many homes, is reflected in the 2015 study by Scholastic and YouGov, which found a 10% drop since 2010 in the number of children who said they love or like reading books for fun.  The adorable little baby you are about to watch, is indicative of how kids start off loving books; in fact this little sweetheart can’t bare it when the book is over.

He listens to his mom reading with wide-eyed attentiveness, even though he is still in diapers.  He hangs on every word, looking at the pictures, into his mother’s eyes and then back again at the book.  He is enraptured as he listens and then the worst thing happens; the book is finished!

He is heartbroken, and begins to cry with such intensity.  He retrieves the book and hands it back to mom, so she will read it again and again and again! Watch what happens each time story time begins and ends.  The video is just adorable and reassuring that the love of reading is an intrinsic pleasure in children, that just needs to be cultivated.

The baby’s wonderful mom has asked people who enjoyed this video to let others know about the website,  Their purpose is to promote literacy among children which will hopefully inspire parents to help their children to maintain their love of reading.

It would be a shame for little bookworms like this darling baby to lose the feeling that books are fun.
