Love to Read Books

Lauri loves to read books. Or I should say that she loves to hear me reading books for her while she is looking at the pictures. I started read for her since she was 4 months old. I got these nursery rhymes mini cardboard book set on local book shop (consist of 12 books: Hey! Diddle Diddle, Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Little Jack Horner, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Sing-a-song of Sixpence, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Ladybird Ladybird, Little Miss Muffet, Round the Mulberry-Bush, Pussy-Cat Pussy-Cat, and Old Mother Hubbard). She specially likes Humpty Dumpty and Pussy-Cat Pussy-Cat.

Hmmmm.... which one should I read first? So many choices.

Better I sit on my bag, so nobody steal it while I am reading this book

Now, she still likes those books, but she also has other collections, like Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rumpelstilskin, etc. She also likes to pretend to read by herself. When she read by herself, she always begin with “Wadadam” and end with “The End”. At first I didn’t understand what the “Wadadam” means. Then later on, I realized that it’s “Once upon a time.” He he heh...

This photo is taken on Dec 06 in Popular Bookshop. If you notice she was wearing my first knitted project.

I believe you are doing the best thing to get your child to love to read later on.
I did well with my older son, giving him lots of books and us reading it together, or me reading it to him before he sleeps. But for my second son, I seem to get more distracted with other chores and things to do. So now they are grown up, my older son continues to read a lot, while the other only reads what is required in school.
Btw, that is a lovely bolero, Lauri looks pretty!

some of my favorite memories of my early childhood involve my mom reading to me and my brother and sister.
