Like a lot of you bibliophile bloggers, my love of reading started at a very young age - my toddler pictures were pretty much all either at the zoo or plopped in front of my bookshelf in my room. J's momma feels the same way I do about reading and the little man gets read to every single night by his parents. It's never too early to start! So naturally for his first birthday, he's going to get some books from his Auntie Rooth. Just thinking about the books I'm going to get him throughout the years gives me goosebumps. He'll meet curious characters such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and Ferdinand the Bull and be whisked away into far off lands of The Phantom Tollbooth and Narnia. He'll learn the meaning of friendship with Doctor Dolittle and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and vanquish evil adults alongside Matilda and Harry Potter.
Oh the places he'll go and the people he'll meet. It's a grand new world that he's going to step into and I can't wait to help him along the way.*
*Okay, so I admit right now we're starting with a lot of 'board books' so he won't rip the books to shreds or eat the pages but you gotta start somewhere.
