Becoming a teacher only added to my obsession. I wanted every book under the sun to have in my classroom library so my students could learn from them and love them as much as I did.
Now that I have a child of my own, my obsession has only grown stronger. Scott gets a little worried if I make it anywhere near the book section of just about any store. Costco is the worst... I want every book I see! I have 100's of books in storage, but they are all for 2nd to 3rd grades and up. I have been in the need of creating a library of books for infants and toddles. Don't worry... I've got a really great start!
Needless to say. I love books. I have read to Addison every day since she was in her fourth month and apparently Addison has cultivated my love for books as well.
I had two videos that I was going to post that really demonstrates her love for books, but dang blogspot wouldn't let me upload them... Arrrgggh.
The first video is Addison listening to me read her favorite book. She laughs at every page and it is pretty much the cutest thing you have ever seen. The second video shows what happens when I finish reading a book and I set it down. Addison's reaction to my putting the book down is hilarious. Instant tears of sadness. The moment I pop a new book up though, immediate happiness. I am so grateful she is cultivating a love for books and reading.
