Perceptions



A sweet little girl. . .


A traditional childhood moment . . .


And she brought a favorite book outside . . .


No, she's not actually reading it. And I cannot explain why she considers this particular book special. But she does and has ever since she first (well over a year ago) picked it up from the bookshelf just outside the bathroom and said it was her 'medium-size poop book.'

She doesn't call it that now. In fact, she pointed to the author's name and asked if it was Maurice Sendak. I cleared that up and spelled out the title for her.

No matter. There's still something special to her about this book.

She must like the cover.

Pretending to read already means she will be an avid reader soon. Reminds me of a great photo we have of M, aged 2, sitting 'reading' a weighty tome entitled 'Art and Sexual Politics'!

It looks good, nice size to hold, and bright! Very interesting looking. It should be fun in a few years when she learns what the cover really says!

That's, um, an interesting choice! I would have expected her to choose something with pictures. Has she ever asked you to read any of it to her? She may be quite disappointed. 😄

And it looks like she is taking great care of it. That's good.
