Many of my kids’ first books are chewed on. They loved them that much.
Max was and still is a chewer. The frayed ends added some humor to a discussion we had the other day about “their baby books.”
They helped me pick out some of their favorites – see below.
“I liked the alphabet books because I didn’t know my letters very good,” said Max.
“I loved them all,” said Calvin.
I personally remember wishing I was one of the hippos in The Belly Button Book when they said, “We don’t do much throughout the day, that’s how we like it best. We watch the waves, we nibble grapes, we take a little rest.”
Then we got crazy and made some videos of us reading the books. Enjoy!
Some of our favorites and a shout out
First, a shout out of thanks to Ellie Hutton! When the boys were born, she sent us an entire box of wonderful board books!
