we got a curious george story collection for finn for his birthday. i had originally intended for this book to be an "only before naptime or bedtime" special treat. but he likes it so much, i let him read it whenever. it is so funny to hear him reading stories to himself. this entire book is composed of two, two year old words. "monkey. hat." monkey, of course, refers to curious george. hat refers to his friends, also known as the man in the yellow hat. and those are the only two words he uses - for the entire book. so he'll be sitting in his room, and i'll hear, "monkey. hat. monkey. hat. monkey. hat. monkey. hat." over and over and over.
he also has this thomas the train book (which i have read so many times, i am slightly tempted to burn it...) which he reads to himself probably 30 times a day. he knows about three words per page, such as "chug chug chug," "poor thomas," "screech, bertie bus," hooray thomas." and he reads it with expression, which is what really makes me laugh. i'll try to get a video.
anyway, i love that finn loves books, and that he attempts to read them to the best of his ability, pretty much by memory.
