Friday Favorites: Books!

on September 14, 2012

George is developing favorite items, foods and activities, so I thought I would start a new series of posts to document these things!

We have been reading to George since birth. At first, he was a captive audience and I read novels to him (like my favorite–Boy by Roald Dahl). Then, he started moving around and like to grab the books and put them in his mouth, so we “read” soft books. He held one and chewed on it while I read another one. But latley, he has been really paying attention when we read to him.

And he LOVES these books:

We received these four of these Usborne touchy-feely books from several different people. We read one every night because they keep his attention with an exciting spot of texture to feel on every page.

He loves to turn the pages and see what it next! Then his little fingers go right for the bumpy, squashy or tufty area.

I can’t wait to read Harry Potter with him. Maybe we can get a touchy-feely version. 🙂

    Reading…a wonderful gift to a child.

    Ha! Arcadia’s partial to the “That’s Not My…” oeuvre as well. We have, in order of decreasing plausibility, That’s Not My Kitty, Tractor, Bear, Lion. Arcadia loves them all.
