Books for Sweet Pea

Just this morning Sweet Pea (3) and I have read:

The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck by Beatrix Potter, Hardback BookThe Tale of Jemima Puddle Duck by Beatrix Potter. This one was for Tigger's school work but Sweet Pea tagged along. And then Sweet Pea brought me a stack of books to read just to her:

I Want to Do It Myself!: A Little Princess Story (Andersen Press Picture Books)I Want to Do It Myself by Tony Ross. This one could also be known as Sweet Pea's manifesto. (Polly checked this one out from the library for her sister - they know her so well!)

Never Take a Shark to the Dentist: and Other Things Not to DoNever Take a Shark to the Dentist by Judi Barrett. Tigger checked this one out, in anticipation of yesterday's dentist visit. Too cute, although Sweet Pea is still a little bit too literal to understand the humor of the pictures.

We're Going on a Bear Hunt: Anniversary Edition of a Modern Classic

We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen & Helen Oxenbury. A family favorite! Sweet Pea always feel sad for the bear at the end. "He just wanted to play with the baby," she told me this morning.

The older girls read so much for themselves that it's easy to forget Sweet Pea still needs to be read to frequently. Her sisters read to her nearly every day but I think it's been awhile since I read just to her. This morning she curled up with me.

"Just one more, Mama," she said after each one.

Those have to be some of the sweetest words in the English language.
