The boys would pick the book they wanted to read and bring it to the reader. They quickly found their 'favorite' books. There is a Blue's Clues book, a Thomas the Train book and a few Scooby Doo books that are in FREQUENT rotation. Even the boys were starting to memorize the words to these books, which made them even more fun (for the boys) to read.
Mommy started to get bored with our library of books. So, we decided to head off to Barnes and Nobles to pick out a few new books. The local store does a story time at 11:30am on Saturday morning so we took advantage of this activity to hit the store. The boys were more entertained by this reader than during our previously story time attempt at the library. However, the excitement of the train table and other stuff in the store would pull them away.
Here is Andrew listening to the story... Wesley also stopped by to check out the story...
When we got home, the boys were eager to read their new books...
I should also mention the Elmo baseball book that plays "Take me out to the ball game" is a fun book to read. It's a fun book to read and fun song to hear until it has been played about 100 times. Then, it gets a little annoying especially because I feel compelled to sing the song every time the song is played. How can you stop? It's a great song!! Well, as we approached the 200th time of playing the song (estimates related to number of times played), it became fun again when the boys start saying... 1, 2, 3 ... BALL GAME!!! Love hearing that from them.
All in all, another great morning with the fam!
