B has a new favorite. It’s the every-single-night-til-forever book.
She has it memorized, and when she reads it to us at bedtime, it makes me want to squeeze her and never let go because I’m so proud. She looks so grown reading (the pictures) in her book.
But… I could do without reading it every. single. night. Just being honest here, folks. Chances are, you know this story, so I’ll keep it short. The little monkeys, of course, are stinkers who just won’t quit jumping on the bed until there are none left to jump (due to falling off the bed and bonking their heads.)
While you’re reading this to your little pal, they can practice counting and they’ll quickly notice that every phrase is matched to its own illustration.See? Isn’t that great?
Do your smartie a favor and bring this book home for them– and you’ll see how proud they are when they memorize it and can “read” it, too.
Oh, and then go ahead and squeeze them and never let go, because they’re suddenly growing up much, much faster.
