But somehow, somewhere along the way in the last couple of months, books have made a comeback and become a huge favorite with the kids. They bring books to us all the time and ask us to read. They even want to read to us (pretend anyway - SO cute!) and they do pretty well with some of their favorite books that have been read over and over again (it also helps if the pictures depict the exact words). One of their all-time favorites right now is Blue Hat, Green Hat by Sandra Boynton (LOVE her books) and it melts my heart to watch them sit down and read this book out loud. Yeah, I know they're just "reading pictures", but I'm still a proud Mamma! :)

And a few more of my favorite reading pics over the years...
The kids STILL love this book - Eight Silly Monkeys
Nurturing a love for books at Barnes & Noble (they just loved us there...I'm sure of it! ;)
Kallie used to wear this bucket on her head all the time!
This one was just taken yesterday and it's SOOOO Emma! No pants (hey we're lucky she's wearing a shirt) and mommy's old shoes - lol! For the record...she walks better in these than I ever did!
