Baby book stack...I love...

Baby Book Stack

These were Nattie's selections as we were doing our reading before bedtime tonight...


I love...

I love when the crocodile snaps, you giggle and we count the monkeys...1, 2, 3, 4, 5!
I love when you stick your finger in the holes to explore the foods the Very Hungry Caterpillar eats...
I love singing the Wheels on the Bus and seeing you act out the motions...
I love saying no to each of the foods in What's for Lunch-and saying Yes to Bananas!  They are your favorite...
I love naming all the growing foods with you-especially bananas!
I love falling down when the letters fall out of the tree OH NO, Chicka Chicka Boom boom!
And most of all, I love that you pick your book stack every night...

    That ending really says it all! I loved those days with my daughter, and reading about you and Nattie brings back that sweet feeling.

    1. I love reading books with her...she just toddles around and brings them over from her book basket one at a time until it is time for bed...she always picks!

  5. Your SOL poem certainly takes me back to the joys of snuggling and reading with kids! My SOL poem was "inspired" about my son (the coach)who spent quite a few nights with those same monkeys and caterpillars! PS Please feel free to share it with coaches who really are very important teachers of our kids too!

  7. The bed-time reading is precious. Your list poem expresses it fully. As much as it is about reading, it is about togetherness.

    1. Thanks, Terje!
      I like how you thought about togetherness! It is just the best when she snuggles in to listen to her story!
