Katya has taken a leap up in her interest level in books!
The other day, it was the delightful "Make Way for Ducklings" by Robert McKloskey. When we looked at the suggested age level, it was 3 to 8 years, putting Katya smack-dab in the age range. So, we dug out "Blueberries for Little Sal" and read that to her. Charity had the fabulous idea to read it using actual [frozen] blueberries and a small pail we had on hand. When Sal put 3 berries in the pail, Katya got to put 3 berries in the pail. When Little Sal ate a blueberry, Katya ate a blueberry!
Katya was quite interested in the story, but only wanted it read to her once, that first day. But the next day, she brough the book around several times, wanting Charity to read it to her. She tries hard to imitate the "plink, plinks" of the berries into the pail, and the "caw, caw" of the crows.
Three cheers for "Blueberries for Little Sal" and all the other great children's books out there that are reaching Katya!
So what other books would you suggest for Katya?!
