This is what I hear tonight at bedtime:
Me: Leo, it's time for bed. I already pulled back the covers. Get in!
Leo: Mom, can I get a book to look at?
Me: Just one.
Yep...I have a reader and I love it. He can even "read" parts of Go Dog Go and Toes, Ears, Nose. I'm not hyping him up or anything but one time when I was reading it to him he started reading along. They must read them a lot at school so he has memorized it by the pictures. I'm ok with it! I'm also a huge reader and he probably has around 50-75 books already and I keep buying him more. They aren't very expensive and he loves them! It makes me happy that I have made a positive influence on him! Books are the gateway to anything and I want him to have as much of an imagination as I had.
