Age of Child: Started reading with child 2 years old.

Young Reader Reaction: Very enjoyable to sing along with and have a grown-up do the same things you're doing.

Adult Reader Reaction: It was fun for a little while. But at age 5, it has lost its appeal.

Pros: It creates a happy, fun activity to do together. The quality of your singing matters less than the fact that you do everything together.
