Storytime for Baby Birds

Update continued…

New Year’s Goal #4–  I will read 4 picture books a week to a couple of sweet babies who love books, or to a hatchling that is about to.

This one is easy–a given, in fact. Oh, and I’ve got the books all right…from the early days when I worked at a local bookstore and had an incurable possession problem. Alas, a few symptoms still linger. Afraid it’s cronic. There is no cure.

Little Chick’s Easter Surprise

Although the twins–Lily and Beckham are only about 14 months old, they still love to climb up on a lap–any lap, and have someone show them, page by page every picture, in any book.

But since they are still at that “board books only” phase, that severely limits the coolness and magic that Grammy can share with them…for now.

The Relative’s Came

When they are older and not so fascinated with how paper sounds–when it rips–just think of the possibilities…

“Stand Back,” Said the Elephant, “I’m Going To Sneeze”

The Red Lion

The Seeing Stick

Whale’s Song

Beauty and the Beast


The Mitten

The Magic String


I could go on for days…but we’ll pause here…to anticipate.

Tough stuff–this patience thing. We’ll be brave.

Because any kind of magic is worth the wait.

  1. Is that picture from your old house or where you live now? My library is starting to look that way too. Mallory’s preschool does scholastic and I am ALWAYS ordering! I love books!

  2. Oooh… I remember Kathy saying that about book orders… we should leech onto her orders and get some more books too! 😉

    I think it’s SOOO SOOO cute that the twins love books sooo much! I hope my little birdy likes them too!!!

    Good luck with your goal! 😉

  3. Kathy–this is a shot from my bookshelves right now–next to the computer. The spooky part is that I have four more shelves in my bedroom. Serious book possession issues!
