Austin is finally feeling better and back to his usual active, destructive self, which means he has little interest in the books Makayla and I are reading, because he'd rather run the dog over with a plastic lawn mower. But Makayla and I are still enjoying exploring our little library, and this week we're reading Five Little Ducks (Raffi Songs to Read).
This book was a hand-me-down from I-can't-remember-where and nothing I'd ever heard of before, but I grabbed it on a whim the other day and started reading it to Makayla, and she loved it. Again, the colors are bright and bold, so they are easy for her to see and she loves to point out all the little baby ducks for me.
Well, we were happily reading it all week, then Makayla's Vision and Physical therapist came for their regular visit, and next thing I know, without them even knowing that we had the book, they are singing the words to the book with Makayla and Austin! Now that I know the book is supposed to be read in a melody and has hand motions and everything, Makayla REALLY loves it!
