Bear loves Books

Little Bear loves books!  We have been reading to him since he was born and it has obviously paid off. Out of all of his toys, books are the only thing that can keep him occupied for any period of time (even without someone reading to him) and this has been the case since he was 8 months old.  Little Bear and I go to the library for story time at least once a week and typically he checks out 10-12 books at a time.  We will read those books at least 3 times a day (before each nap and before bed plus any time he picks them up).  We also have stashes of books all through the house and at each of his "play stations."  We even have the tub books with his tub toys!

Little Bear reading his Funny Face book by Nicola Smee.

Since we love to read and I feel that reading is invaluable for learning and growing up happy, we thought that this would be a great opportunity to recommend some of Little Bear's favorite books (of course he loves everything with cars/trucks/trains or real baby pictures so we won't list all of those...).  Every once in awhile, we will give you some updates in case you are looking for something new to read.  Please share your favorites too!

I'm a Little Caterpillar by Tim Weare
