My son loves reading time. He grabs a book, covers himself with a blanket and calls me over. He excitedly points to the things in the book that he knows and describes them in full detail. He inquisitively asks me about the things he doesn't know so he can learn about them too. It's a great way to not only teach him about new things (and how they work) but also to broaden his vocabulary.
