This is Aliza's favorite collection of books. Juvenile entertainment. Dora, Diego, Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake... She looks through every book to decide which ones she wants and then brings me a huge pile to read. On this particular trip to the library she brought me about 10 Dora books to take home. I said she could choose 2, we settled on 3. What I didn't realize is how she interpreted this negotiation. She brought me 3 Dora, 3 Diego, 3 Yo Gabba Gabba, 3 Blues Clues...on and on. This time I let it go. She was so excited and, really, what did it matter? We read every one of those books and they bring her hours of happiness and they are FREE.
Here is the pile to bring home! Aliza could hardly carry them all at once.
Josiah's favorite reading spot. My job is to find him some tractor books. Chrissy scored big points when she found him a John Deere board book.
We usually stop at the coloring table to color a picture or two. Josiah is still looking at his John Deere book.
Today Aliza and I settled on 3 Franklin books, 3 Clifford's, 1 Curious George and 1 of anything/everything else. I also picked a couple non-entertainment books. She looked at them at least twice, once in the car and once after lunch. Then after Josiah was tucked in for a nap Aliza laid all the books out on my bed so I could tell her the titles. She chose 2 to read then. After nap she carried all those books downstairs and outside. While making supper I read another.
