Salvatore has a new favorite book and he wants to read it all of the time. It's called The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. It is now beating out Goodnight Moon. He LOVES to read the title to me and point to the grouchy face that she makes on the cover. Then he listens to each page inside, and we practice telling time, naming the animals and insects, and describing what they each do. He has two new favorite questions, "What is his/her name?" and "What does he/she/it do?" If I am too tired to answer his endless questions, then he makes ME ask HIM and he answers for me.
Here is a picture of him copying the "grouchy face" made my the ladybug.
And here is his "happy face" because he likes to remind me that he is not really grouchy!
