my mom was always a big believer in reading. she read to me constantly & i used to be able to repeat entire books just from memory before i truly understood how to put words together & read. it helped expand my little vocabulary & i am passing on this belief to madison that reading to her constantly will help her learn. that being the case, we have developed an intense library. some purchased by me but mostly from friends & family from near & far. for madison’s baby shower instead of cards all our guests brought books with notes written inside. and can you believe we didn’t get the same book twice?! that’s how many wonderful books there are out there for children. classics and modern alike. i wanted to share our favorites. i recommend these to all new mamas to read to their little.
