“There is no substitute for books in the life of a child.”
~ Mary Ellen Chase
Livi is in love … with her books. It has been an ongoing love affair.
Her first “toy” was a cloth book. She loved to touch it, amazed at the sounds it made, and she enjoyed the brightly colored pictures.
Then she discovered board books. Unfortunately, she loved them a little too much and they would always end up in her mouth.
But soon she found out that board books were fantastic stacking material. It was one of the first “games” she played on her own: moving books from one stack to another and back again. But she never had the patience to just sit and look at a book or to have us read a story to her.
