Of course right now baby L has no idea what I'm reading to her, and honestly would rather taste her literature, but even showing her the pictures and the different colors is great for her learning and pretty soon she'll be asking for more and more. That's what excites me! Getting kiddos excited about reading. I'm convinced because my family read to little C so much as a baby, that's why he's such an amazing reader to this day (that and genes...wink.). He's reading above anyone else in his preschool class and his teacher is sending home books just for his level. Love it! I'm amazed every day by what he can read.
We started reading Jane Eyre with baby L because it uses numbers (1 Governess, etc), and well, it's my all-time fav. Blush. What an adorable way to present counting! Now lately baby L has been reading Alice in Wonderland and Romeo & Juliet, which also present cute photos (think rabbits and kisses...swoon) with counting. It will be a little while before we crack open Goodnight Mr Darcy but I'm thrilled and can't wait. Jane Austen and her Mr Darcy character make this arts major swoon. (Check out the I Heart Darcy tote bag in the Baby Lit shop!) The adaption here for kids is just genius!
