Before Raising a Reader program, I would read to my oldest son every once in a while (not very often).  I remember the first bag that we got.  I sat on a sofa with my oldest son and we read a book called Baboon.  He was around 3 years of age at the time and he was really interested in the story and wanted to me to read it over and over.  That is when I truly realized that this was something we could both enjoy and we looked forward to getting new bags with new books.
