|Day 20 of 31 at TWT!|
"Don't worry if your baby does not pay much attention to the book..."
"You don't have to finish the book..."
I snort every time I read an article mentioning reading to babies. Obviously, these people have never met a baby like Little Sweetie. Quiet? Calm? Losing attention? Not this baby!
|Not quite a month old, and flailing like crazy!|
Ever since my mom set our old copy of Wet Willy's Water Fun beside her on a blanket when she was about a month old, this one has LOVED books.
She swipes and flails. She pats and whacks. She squeals, coos, giggles, and squawks!
|Yeah, we're readers in this family!|
|Daddy! This book is awesome!!!|
|Whoa, I can open this!|
She grabs and holds the book. She opens and closes it. She helps turn the pages. She leans forward and rocks with anticipation.
She flips the book back and forth, studying how the front and back cover are different.
Her curious fingers search for textures and flaps. She claps, points, and babbles.
When we get to the end, she wants to explore more, turning back to find her favorite pages and practicing turning them.
She even picks up books and "reads" them independently as she plays on her turtle mat or in her playpen.
|I can read by myself now, you guys!|
This one was born a reader.
