This week, I dropped the ball more on reading to Mason. Actually, I shouldn’t say that, I read him several books while he played on the other end of the room and basically ignored me, so I’m pretty sure that doesn’t count. Hmmpfh.
This week’s top reads were Barnyard Dance, Eight Silly Monkeys, and Guess How Much I Love You. The book slamming wasn’t bad this week but only because he was too busy trying to crawl away to slam them shut *sigh*
Mason also discovered how to pull up on his book shelf and knock down half a dozen books with one swoop of his arm. This wasn’t quite the book loving development I was looking for! This did allow him to find the adorable dog shaped book that his Auntie Sarah bought him last Easter and he has been having fun carrying that around!
As for me, I finished the 5th book in my 40 in 40 challenge – I read The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult. I have a serious love/hate relationship with Picoult books. They suck me in and I enjoy them up until the last chapter. I HATE her endings. It’s like she always picks the most outlandish thing to happen (usually the main character randomly tragically dying) and then says THE END. It just totally seems like a cop out way of ending the story. I’m still slogging through (probably a bad sign) The Great Penguin Rescue and just started Putting Away Childish Things last night.
Geez, look at that… If I was half as good as reading to Mason as I have become reading to myself, we’d be in business!
So, what did you guys read to your little ones or by yourself this week? And if you didn’t join us last week – what are some of your favorite books to read with your little one??
