If you have, oh, about 15 minutes to spare or need to find an excuse to procrastinate for a bit, here are some videos of Corynn reading.
Er. Well...not reading. She received a book in the mail last week that has quickly become her all-time favorite (for now.) I meant to write you, Abby, to thank you and to tell you how much she has enjoyed it-but then I thought, you wouldn't FULLY understand how serious I was being unless you saw for yourself.
She asked me to read it day after day, and each time I was done-before I had spoken the last written word she asked it I would read it again. Within a week, she had it memorized.
So, no. She can't read. But she could fool anyone who didn't know the truth!
We interrupt this program...
Sorry for the laugh fest. Ever since she was a bitty one, she has had the uncanny ability to make me lose all my senses in laughter. She looks at me funny and I start chuckling, then she starts her giggling and eventually we are both red in the face with tears streaming and cheeks throbbing.
Once we eventually regain our composure (sort of), she continues on...
And that, is pretty much word for word (with the exception of a few misplaces Days of the Week and a few random tangents) the book Heckedy Peg.
It's a keeper. The illustrations are beautiful too. Corynn sais "This book is beautiful. I like how all the pictures are gold." All having gold tones is something that I like too. If you haven't already, you ought to find this one and share it with your kiddos.
Thanks so much Abby for sharing the great books!
