I realized a couple weeks ago that I never posted the April reading corner! I wish I could say it was because I just forgot - but sadly, it was more due to the fact that books have not been quite as popular around here lately. After our reading frenzy in March, I thought we were on a roll...but I guess I was wrong.
We've been running more errands and having more playdates and generally just leaving the house more often, so I think that may have a little bit to do with the lack of reading. We signed up for the summer reading program at the library, so hopefully that will inspire more reading for us in the next few months!
I don't have a lot of favorite books to mention today, but wanted to share a trend I have noticed when Lincoln looks at books. He's noticing family dynamics! Every time he finds a book with multiple family members pictured, he will point out each one - "dada," "mama," "baby." I think it's really sweet.
My favorite is when he finds a mother figure in a book. The way he looks at me and says "Mama?!" as if to confirm that he has indeed found another mommy in one of his books...it tugs on my heartstrings. I love this boy!
Here are a few of his favorite books featuring "mamas."
|Dopey's Bedtime. Snow White may not be a mama, but she looks like one!|
|Peter Rabbit, a lift-the-flap board book.|
|Really Woolly Little Book of Bible Verses.|
We'll be reading a lot in June for the summer reading program - yay! If you're looking for more reading ideas, you can check out all our recent favorites here!
