Since I was an English major in college, it should be obvious that books hold a very special place in my heart. I've always felt that reading is a very pleasurable and enjoyable experience, and I'm sad that I don't have much time anymore to just sit down by myself and read a book cover to cover. You know, unless it's about the Berenstain Bears or something. :) And I'm not even as good about reading little books to my girls as I want to be. Yet despite all that, I still catch both girls in the act of picking up books and "reading" them, and the sight warms my heart. I want my babies to grow up loving books and the worlds that we can only visit when we read. Right now, though, I want to invite you into our world so you can see the seeds for a love of learning start to germinate.
I actually took this video way back last May, but I found it again when I had the idea for this post:
|This is quite possibly my favorite book from my childhood!|
|Surprise! Seriously, one of my favorite pictures ever!|
