Books have always been part of the boy-child’s life. His father was reading The House at Pooh Corner to him while we were still in the maternity ward.
We discovered very early on that sharing a book with him – even just holding it and talking about the pictures – was enough to engage him.
An epiphany at about five months; we handed him a book upside down and he turned it right way up.
Early favourites; The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the Buzzy Bee counting book, Duck is Dirty, Ten Little Rabbits and appropriately enough, The Baby Who Wouldn’t Go to Bed!
Adding a new dimension to the term “devouring a book.”
Not much has changed really.
