Elizabeth at 9 months old
From a very young age, we have read to Elizabeth and allowed her to explore books. Even now, as she approaches her second birthday, she loves reading and will frequently ask us to read a book with her. She often sits and reads a book on her own as well. Now obviously she can't actually read the books but she will turn the pages and point at things on the page, babbling her way through the book (and I'm pretty sure she knows exactly what's going on on the pages). She has a few favourites that she will pick up more than the rest and these are the ones that have that 'well read' look about them. Some flaps are missing in the Where's Spot? book, there are rips on some pages in the Totte Ryder Op book (her favourite Danish story, Totte Tidies Up) and there are many many creases on most of the pages. Personally I try not to think about the state of some of these books...
We love Elizabeth's passion for books and hope that it continues to grow with her. One day she may even be as obsessed with them as her parents are :)
