My son is 15 months old and is an extremely active toddler. He prefers to explore and walk about rather than sit and concentrate on anything for very long. I try reading to him everyday but he only seems interested for about 2 minutes before he is off walking about the house. I`ve tried reading him nursery rhyme action books, lift-the-flap books, and other books with pictures of animals and things he is familiar with (like shoes, socks, bath etc). Again his attention span is quite short. Is there something I can do to encourage his love of books. By comparison his cousin who is three weeks older can sit and read a book with his parents for at least half an hour and longer. I don`t like to compare them as each child is different but am just wondering if I could be doing something differently to encourage his reading.
