Allison's Early Reading Skills!

Allison LOVE books. She asks us to read a good 20 or 25 books a day to her. She's also good at sitting down and reading to herself. She has a few favorites... She loves "Fancy Nancy", "The Tooth Book" and "The Monster At the End of This Book." Lately, this is what we have been finding when she reads her monster book to herself.

She's saying "the page" on the pages where Grover is shouting about having the pages turned! She shakes the book back and forth because Brian and I tend to shake the book when we read it to her on those pages. I thought it was too cute. Do you think I'll have an early reader?

She is so cute! "The Monster at the End of This Book" is a favorite at our house too, second only to "Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type" in Amy's opinion. In that book, Amy likes to turn the pages looking for the duck (or just randomly turn pages) and say "ducky." I think the combination of "reading" and learning new words is very cute.

Keagan is the same way! He loves books and reads all day long. He does very similar things when he "reads" to himself. He also gets much more excited at the library or bookstore than a toystore. ;)
