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.

Plus, there are very few things in this world that will keep him still for more than a few seconds!

    Awww… I love to see kids reading. My daughter hardly ever slows down enough to read anymore unless I make her. She used to do that too — sit with a stack of books and read for awhile.
