Calling All Super Readers!
Thursday, July 3, 2008

As it turns out, Avery has become quite the little bookworm. I couldn't be more thrilled, and I'm certainly willing to sit and read with her all day. But if I read one more book about the wonderful sounds Mr. Brown can do, or hippos showing off their belly buttons, I think I'm going to pull my hair out. I need help. The girl is constantly throwing the same books at me all day, and since I know them by heart, it's becoming increasingly more difficult to read them with as much enthusiasm as I did the first 225 times.

I need some recommendations. What are your favorites?

Is The Count of Monte Cristo too heavy for my beautiful, smiling little niece? ;)

Spencer loooooves "Horton Hatches the Egg", anything Curious George does, "The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark", and his potty book (I wish it were a little more inspiring for him). I feel your pain with Mr. Brown and the beebo book.... I almost have Horton memorized.

Oh goodness... we adore little nutbrown hair in "I love you this much", any Sandra Boyton ("But not the hippopatomus", "Barnyard Dance") book is a hoot, and if you get a kick out of them, then buy one of her music CD's...I think I find the songs more entertaining than Maggie.

I'm sure you've read these but "The Runaway Bunny" is one of our favorites and so is, "Goodnight Moon". We also read "Who Stole the Cookies From The Cookie Jar." Hayden was "reading" that to us very early on. Happy hunting to you!

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
