Nothing like a good book

In this house, we love a good book. Since I was a kid, my dad introduced me to the magic of books. I still remember when he bought me my first Enid Blyton book with chapters and no pictures-- I thought I had reached the big leagues and the world that has opened up since then is one that I have held dear to my heart. I think of my books as friends, I reread my favourite ones each year, I always use my local library and I spend way too much money on e-books and magazines. Darin loves books also and has virtually taken over my Kindle (Although as he only reads books once, he should really use the library more)

Cassia is also an avid reader. I started reading to her when she was weeks old and we have continued ever since. At night, it's always "Just one more story." This after we've already read 3 books--- and she likes the long ones! She is always roping some unsuspecting family member into reading to her when they come to visit. Sometimes I'll even catch her perusing a book and telling herself a made up story.

Often at bedtime, the baby joins Darin and Cass as they are reading stories. She is already interested in the pictures and the story-- although most times she just wants to chew the book!

The only kind of book that works for this baby
