Love for books

Some of my favorite memories from childhood are of books. I can remember my mom always reading to us. I loved The Pokey Little Puppy. One of my all time favorites is Good Night Moon. At my Grandma and Grandpa's we always read the stories about Mr. Happy and Mr. Messy and so on.
My love of books continued as I grew up. When I started taking classes in Early Childhood I started to collect children's books. One birthday and Christmas all I asked for was children's books. Kind of an odd request from a college student. But it started my collection that has grown throughout the years. Now Hadley has inherited over 200 books. Since she was born I have been waiting for the day that she showed interest in them. That day has come.
She can be found all over the house with a book in hand. She likes to go in her room during the day and read. She will even sit still for a whole story. One of her favorites right now is Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me By: Erik Carle. It is also one of my favorites. I hope that her love of books continues to grow as she does.
