I have read to my 2.5 year old daughter since she was born & she has loved it from day one & reading is a regular part of every day (she makes sure of this!!). I also have a 9 month old daughter, who is very different to her sister in most ways. I am having a great deal of difficulty reading anything to her. If I sit her on my lap to read, she doesn`t even glance at the book before eagerly shoving it her mouth. I have tried sitting her in her bouncer a few times, so she can`t reach the book but she isn`t interested & doesn`t look at the pictures or pay attention to me reading.
At the moment, all she`s getting is overhearing me read to my toddler. I still make at least one attempt to read to her every day, as I feel reading is really important. Should I keep trying or give it a rest for a while?
Any tips would be gratefully accepted!
