A Must-Share Story

We all know how much Jake loooooves his books (and if you don't know, stop by my house...I'd be happy to let you read him book after book after book for a little while!) and last night after I got home from work, we started the marathon of reading. One of his favorite books is called Mirror Me and one of the pages has a big picture of a sun with a face and the caption says "The sun has a sunny smile-say cheese!".
So last night, we weren't reading that one (yet) but we were reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar....and we came to a page with a picture of a sun, so I read the caption in the book then said the line from Mirror Me ("the sun has a sunny smile...") and as soon as I said it, Jake sat straight up in my lap, looked at me, looked at his book basket, looked back at me, then scrambled off my lap. First, I couldn't figure out what was wrong....then I realized that he was reaching in the basket for Mirror Me!! Sure enough, he brought it over to me with a big smile on his face. :)

Here he is, sharing his book with Gracie...and the dishwasher.

That's cute. I just bought Mirror Me for a friend. The Hungry Caterpillar is a hit in our house -- as is I Love You Through and Through. :) Jake is so smart. I think it's awesome that he loves to read.

So cute!! Evelyn LOVES Mirro Me! I swear she loves books, particularly that one, more than her toys. And the sun page is her favorite.
