Some of these books I haven't even heard of (shame on me). I wish I could find versions of some of these books with pictures. Sophia will sit and listen to any story... no matter how long or "adult" as long as it has pictures so she can connect the dots. Right now she is on a Lorax kick... she made me read it to her 3 times yesterday alone. And she gets so upset with the Once-ler every time. She made me read her Eloise too, which is very (very) long. It wouldn't have been tragic had she not made me go back and read her the part about Saylor (who was in a very bad accident and bleeded so much that she had to go in the ambulance to the hospital because it was an emergency... ) every 5 pages. (That's her favorite part). She's very into ambulances and hospitals and doctors helping people when they get hurt to try and make them better. I do think it is time for a trip to the library!

We desperately need a trip to the library as well. Sophia sounds so cute. A very smart kid.

P loves the injury parts too and all Eloise!
