Only in my house is the “If you don’t go to your room, you won’t get a story before bed” a threat.
My daughter has loved books since she was able to sit up. I have read to her nightly (as I can) since she was born. Her love of books comes from me, and my love came from my great grandfather.
Her book collection rivals mine as a toddler, and she loves being read to, and seems to be headed towards being an early reader. This is good. She doesn’t talk much, but she is catching up with her verbal skills, and there is no question that she actually understands what is being said to her (she scampered to her room post haste after that was said to her).
I can’t wait to take her to the library… and see her face when she sees an entire building dedicated to books…
