    I sometimes do. But Miss K is starting to catch on when I do it with certain books we've read a lot

    I'm not a parent yet, but I'm a toddler teacher and yes sometimes I will skip pages when im reading to them. I only do it when there is ALOT of text on the page and I know they wont pay attention to it. That's really the only time I do it.

    No never. They read to me and if I read to them they know. Even as little kids they knew the story didn't make sense if you skipped a page..lol

    I have, but not in story books. My son likes DK encyclopedias, and we'd be up all night if we read them cover to cover!
