No, Dinosaur!

It’s Wednesday and time for My Life With a Dinosaur, but this time we are joining in on the
We recently did a review on Mother Daughter Book Reviews for the book Funny Farm, but Dinosaur also loves the book
I found the book and knew it was perfect for my son. Since we read books all the time, he loves to read to me now.
Sit here mommy.” Dinosaur points to the seat next to him on the couch.
I happily sit next to him as he reads to me, remembering the words on each page. I take pride, knowing that books are as important to him as they are are to me. I love that not only reads the book, but comments on the each page.At the end of the book, Dinosaur and I hug and say we love each other, just like David and his mommy.
“See mommy, I can read it too.” Dinosaur grins at me
His smile is so infectious.
“Yes my love, you read it so well. I am so proud of you.” I smile down at him and kiss his face.
He smiles again, hugs me and rubs my face. For such a wild boy,Β  he can be so pure and gentle.
“Okay, we play hide and seek now,” he grins at me and jumps off the couch and runs into his room.
What book(s) do you love to read with your kids? Do they read to you?

  1. Max loves for me to read “Guess How Much I Love You”. It has been his nighttime book for him for the last 3 weeks. However, no matter the time of day, Daddy must read to him “Goodnight Moon”. I gotta admit, my husband’s voice is very soothing when he reads it. Last one we can’t go a day without reading is “Mr. Brown Can Moo”, the Dr. Seuss book. I love reading that because it has all the sounds. Max has been following along the words with his finger, That has been so encouraging.

    • oh that’s great babe that he’s following the words. that’s an awareness of words…woooohooo. Way to go mom and dad.

      Isn’t it great when kids love books?

    • that is awesome! it seems to have paid off, your love of writing was born from that. Wondrous things happen when parents read to children.

  2. We love reading to our kids. The recent favourites have been, If you give a cat a cupcake for my son, and fancy nancy for my daughter! Thanks for sharing this book!

  3. My little one chooses my seat too πŸ™‚ In fact, sometimes he makes us switch seats in the middle of reading! I love that your guy is a reader. “Book” was one of Max’s first words, which made me SO proud πŸ™‚ We’ll check out the book in our next library run!

  4. Thanks for linking in to the Kid Lit Blog Hop Karen! The David books are so great, aren’t they? Every time you describe what Dinosaur says or does, it puts a smile on my face – he’s so adorable and you are one awesome Mama for instilling the love of reading in your little boy. It will serve him well his whole life! πŸ™‚

  5. Hi! How sweet to have your son sit down to read to you. Love it! Instilling a love for books at an early age will last forever. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

  6. Watty is tackling Narnia, so we no longer do much of the “read aloud” to him. I treasure that he reads aloud to his younger brother and takes the time to listen when GoGo wants to read to him. GoGo is into non-fiction science books these days. Specifically turtles.

  7. Aww, that is so sweet! I have a similarly active son, so I am so thankfully he also loves to sit and read with me. It is fun to get a glimpse inside how someone else’s storytime goes πŸ™‚
