Max and Calvin weigh in on video

board books

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!

  1. Julia, you are the sweetest! Do you know Sheep in a Jeep? Our youngest grandchild is nearly 11, and I still remember it. Have read it at least a hundred times! Love stories about your sweet family. Ellie

    • Amen to what Julie wrote. “Bye Bye Be-Boo.” Your blog fills me with joy, and a bit of nostalgia too for my mothering and grand mothering days. Max and Joey are beyond board books but we had so much fun with the ones their Dad had, and the new ones. Love your loving, reading nature, Ms. Julia.

  2. Rob and I watched the vids last night and were going crazy over the cute factor. Love those boys and love you. Max is looking so much like you!
    Rob said — and couldn’t have said it better–“we need more Julia mace in our lives…”
