Maybe you saw “library book” in the title and remembered I live with a small banshee and thought oh no. I don’t blame you. But in fact, RR is the most careful reader I’ve ever met.
Compared to RR, I cavalierly rip through books devil-may-care. I’m a librarian. She carefully turns each page, never missing one, giving it a good scan before moving to the next. The books are never upside down, the pages aren’t crumpled. Once she saw another child rip a page and she very nearly died. Even if you give her a magazine, she is careful with the flimsy pages. It’s like she’s a page-turning savant.
We’ve recently borrowed Olivia from the library and sometimes we catch her reading quietly in the living room (instead of running around with her radio like a rock star on crack). Other favorite books with grown-up pages include the entire Llama Llama series (this one in particular) and some crazy thing about the noises a bunny makes. That said, she still reads board books just as meticulously including the masterpiece seen here “Please Baby Please” . I love this book.
Right. There’s a video below but if there was a click-through agreement box here it would tell you that absolutely nothing happens in the first 50 seconds (of 55) in this clip except baby babbling. There’s a brilliant smile at the end that pretty much just captures our kid in two seconds flat. Read on RR, read on.
