Emmit Fenn - Modern Flame (feat. Yuna)
I Hope Emmett Doesn't Grow Out Of THIS Behavior!
I don't know if it's just what kids do at his age, but Emmettlovesbooks!
Obviously he's not reading, but he likes to carefully flip through the pages and look through the pictures.
A teacher I once interviewed for aWoman's Daystory said she feels the most important thing a parent can do with a child is read. From the story (How to Make School Better for Your Kids): "'Read in front of your children and read to your children,' said Beth Taylor. Children who struggle with reading and writing will struggle throughout school. If reading and writing come easily to them, school will come easily. The classroom is a start, but it's also your job to ensure they have a solid grasp of the fundamentals."
Perhaps Emmett's just treating his books like any other toy—but I hope playing with books now leads to a lifelong love of them.
Do your kids love books, too? Does loving books as a baby mean they love books as they get older?
p.s. I forgot to tell you guys the big news: I joined Twitter! (Yeah, I know: Welcome to 2007.) Follow for even more baby-y stuff, plus my utterly random musings.
