|Carter giving the dog a treat.|
Elise started out not as interested in books as Carter was at a young age but she has more than made up for it recently. Whereas she used to not sit through even one board book, now she likes to sit and read picture book after picture book with me on days Carter is at school. She has also taken up reading books by retelling them and by reading the pictures. I'm amazed by her memory and how well she's able to retell stories. She is so cute and I love it when she reads to me. One day she was reading to me and Carter and we were loving it to much she just kept reading her book over and over. Then she picked up another book to read to us. My favorite was That's Not My Penguin. On one page the penguin looks mad and the first time she read it, she said, "That's not my penguin. It's head is mad." I laughed so she kept reading the book over and over. I'm so glad they both love to read and I hope their love for books leads to a life of enjoyable reading!
