I’ve been reading my son Horns to Toes and In Between by Sandra Boynton (originally published 1984) since he was four months old. He’s now 15 months and I’m delighted that he has begun to respond as we read together. This board book is a ridiculous book for learning our body parts because the narrators are monsters and, of course, they have horns on their heads and tails. I’m sure this will lead to lots of laughs as he gets older.
This month, my son began pointing to his head for the first page, as I’ve always done when we read it. I was so excited to see it. He’s learning! He also had fun trying to see his belly button. What a fun age he is at! I can’t wait to see what other things he begins to react to as we read books together.
What did you read your children last month? What are you reading today?
