Won't You Read to Me? Wednesday



This week's book is really special because it is Ann Peyton's very first favorite book. When she crawls over to her book basket, more times than not, she chooses this one....

In My Den
by Sara Gillingham
Illustrated by Lorena Siminovich

It is so neat to see her developing preferences.

We got this book for her for Christmas because we've always called her (in addition to many other nicknames) "baby bear". Peyton and I called each other "honey bear" and "little bear" when we were dating, so we called little Annie "baby bear" from her earliest days in my tummy. So, I guess, in addition to bunny books, we have started collecting bear books, as well!

This book if fun to read because there aren't very many words, so it is perfect for her increasingly short little toddler attention span. The pictures are really neat and she loves grabbing the little felt bear puppet that sticks through the die-cut openings in each page. And of course, I love that it's about a sweet, three bear family!

We called Evie baby bear and Carl was Papa Bear. Soooo funny! You are so sweet to think of Evie with the bibs. We went back today to look for them too and they are not at our Target.
