This will be just a highlight of what Carter is reading this week. Well, let me restate that, what he has been reading now for a few weeks and if I am not smart enough to hide the book, what we will be reading for the next 'who knows how long'. You may remember that his birthday cake was a barn since he loved this book:
Well, he found it again and the love that was between the both of them rekindled and is more on fire than ever!
I swear, if I have to read the book again, I may have to shoot myself in the foot, just to get out of it! Lovely, coming from a teacher, isn't it? But it isn't just the fact that he wants to read it, he wants to have the book open and looking at it, hours upon end. He literally would sit and look through this book for hours on end, if we allowed him. But we try to break it up for no longer than half hour segments - for our sanity!! But still, I think this weekend alone, Jeremy and I must have had that book opened and actively involved with him for over 4 hours!! Because, he won't be content in sitting by himself and looking through it, he wants us involved reading, asking him "Where is _______" and watching him open each individual flap. Over and over and over and over.....
Okay, sorry, I digress. Seriously though, if you have an infant / toddler, you need to get this book!! It really is a great book to have on hand (yes, now the teacher is talking and not the frazzled over-read mom). It covers counting, colors, opposites, animal sounds and then you can still discuss many other aspects of each page. And each page has little flaps that can be opened by little fingers to see what's behind them!!
Now it's your turn. What are you and your kiddos reading this week? Just for the fun of it, take a few pics, write a post about it and link up (add the direct link for your post not your main website please) here, so we can check it out!
