We started reading to Simon when he was in the NICU right after he was born. We have read to him every day since as part of his bedtime routine.
He has shown much more interest in books in the last month. If he is at all fussy I set him on my lap and as soon as I pull out a book he calms down. Honestly, it could be any book – words or no words, but still, he’s developing a love of books! So awesome!
I try to pick books that I am willing to read over and over again because although Simon’s book collection is growing, we definitely will read his books many, many times – at least until he expresses an opinion over which books he prefers. I love books that I can read with enthusiasm, funny voices, etc.
Basically I will do anything to try to coax a smile or a laugh out of my almost 4 month old.
Today’s giveaway is for new copies of Simon’s current “favorite” books.
Ok, Simon hasn’t really said that they’re his favorite, but we’ve been reading them a lot and I thought that I would share the love.
We are clearly on a Mo Willems kick with 1 & 2, but 3 is so cute! We were gifted a copy of Stop Snoring Bernard! from Simon’s aunt and haven’t put it down since.
