Reading with Red Chief

Lately, one of the easiest things for me to do with Red Chief is to read to him. He will bring me book after book as I sit on the couch, and I don't have to lift a finger. (Good thing I like to read.) Today I thought I'd see how many books he would bring me before he called it quits. Quite a few!


  1. Looks like you had a bit of an Eric Carle theme going... Kaia has been studying Eric Carle, and they are also growing caterpillars in her class. She thinks he's the best thing ever, and all art projects at home involve caterpillars. She's really getting Mo into it.

    I think Red Chief will be a reader like his mom! I'm one too, but Mo's books aren't as exciting. Kaia and I on the other hand are reading "My Side of the Mountain" and it is really enjoyable.

  2. Jemima Puddle-Duck. Sigh. What good taste you have!

    Glad to see Stan & Jan are still publishing, too.

  3. did you know that there have been some story books made out of the little house books? I suppose a purist might turn up their nose, but they are really quite good. mostly snippets from the actual books but with more illustrations- which are done in a deliberate immitation/copy of the garth williams ones we all love so well. you might want to check them out if you love laura as i do☺

  4. I think my kids would let me read to them all day if I would. Such sweet times together. :)

  5. I'm always amazed at how long children will sit when you're reading to them! (I'm also very thankful for that fact when I've been pregnant...)

  6. Diane, yes! I picked up Summertime in the Big Woods a long time ago, and Red Chief loves it so much that he chose Little House in the Big Woods as our current chapter book. I'm a big fan of it--I'll have to get the others from the library.
