Re: S/O When did you start reading "real" books to your kids?
My dd had a very long attention span for reading from a young age. Her first two word phrase (at about a year) was "read it!". By 18 months we were reading to her upwards of 3 hours a day--and she wanted more! I think we started chapter books around 2 years old. Dd was ready for the more complicated stories and language they offered.
