I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with his fascination with books. I’ve made a habit of picking books up at used book stores, or the sale tables at discount stores. I was collecting children’s books long before I had children and now it’s really paying off.
About a month and a half ago I decided to put all of the picture books in the playroom where he could reach them. The window seat in the playroom makes a perfect place for reading. I was a bit reluctant; not knowing how gentle he would be with them but he’s been great. Several times a day I will find him pouring over the pages.
I love walking through the house and seeing him sprawled out on the carpet or curled up on the window seat, with a stack of them next to him. I know from the look on his face that he is totally and blissfully lost in the pictures of the book.
