Weekend Reading

I am in the middle of a few books, as well as reading the Sookie Stackhouse series (the books the show "True Blood" is based on--and may I say that the show is actually better than the books, which is a surprise.) So, I don't have a particular book to review or recommend at the moment, but my son does!

My son is an avid reader. He is a year and a half. Crazy, right? For a toddler full of energy, the only time I can get him to sit still is with a stack of books. Before I had kids, I never knew what to buy other kids, especially ones under 2. So my solution to anyone ever wondering what to buy young toddlers is BOOKS. They last forever. They can be used over and over again. They (hardly ever) break. Oh, and the best part? They don't need batteries! What a relief!

My son's personal preference is any book about colors. The book above is just a collection of pictures categorized by color. He LOVES to point out each thing that I say: Can you point to the orange pumpkin? His face lights up every time he gets one right. So I thought I would just share a tip for anyone wondering what to buy nieces, nephews, etc. this summer. Happy reading!

What a CUTE little fellow!!!

The books that I remember from way back then had really bright colors!!!

I wished the colors seemed as bright today...

Maybe it has something to do with my 'jaded' factor.

Wait until he's interested in dinosaurs!!!!
