i've been building up a stash of children's books (mostly pre-loved) for my boy hoping that he too would learn to love books... and feel that it can take you to different places and time too! :-) despite all the digi-books, i still love the feel of real pages flipped and the smell of aging paper just enhances imagination further (adik ba? hehehe)
we were occasionally reading books to him and he would always end up not really listening but grabbing the book and wanting to flip the pages on his own (which he still unable to...) kaya last night was really a 'mommy's-teary-eyed-sa-tuwa-dahil-baby-made-her-proud' moment when he grabbed a book and gestured that he'd be seated on my lap and we'll read the book together without the grabbing... :-)
i posted this in my FB account:
"proud sweet paomoment tonight... part of his pre-bedtime routine is to pull out all his books and flashcards and create a mess on the floor.... but tonight, after creating the mess, he picked The Three Billy Goats Gruff and asked to be seated on my lap... i read him the book and for the first time he was not trying to grab it from me, he just sat there and listen and touch the photos... :D may kasama pang tawa na kakaiba hehehe :-) ♥♥♥"
