My 14-month old baby has always liked it when I read to her, but lately she's taken reading to a whole new level. She loves to sit and "read" books by herself, and will read each page from left to right. She even knows to turn the pages at a regular reading pace!
Lately Kaitlyn has taking reading to a whole new level. She'll go get a book, carry it to me, back up into my lap, and hand me the book to read it to her. I read the book (she turns the pages---and she knows when it's time to turn the pages), we finish the book, she puts the book down, gets up and then goes and gets a new book. This process can be repeated 10 to 20 times. I have to distract her with a toy to stop her reading binges!
Kaitlyn's favorites are the little board books, anything by Dr. Seuss. Kaitlyn has three books we have read countless times---Put Me in the Zoo, Oh the Thinks You Can Think!, and Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?. She never tires of reading---but does that really surprise you?
Fellow moms, are your kids readers? And how old were they when they really started liking books? Fourteen months seems young to me, to be so into reading, but what do I know?
