I love the template that Linda chose for the Template Challenge on the DD blog this week!

The photo is of our darling granddaughter. Her parents have gotten all of their children off to a great start with books. They each are readers and have been read to since birth. This little girl has loved all sorts of print . . . from cookbooks, to instruction manuals . . . and, of course children’s books. There is always a book read to her before naps and bedtime and always an indestructible book tucked inside her crib.

Journaling: You love to look at books, you love to be read to, and you love especially to curl up with your blanket and read before nap time and bed time. Today you are in the little book nook that your mama made in the playroom at your house. You are wearing your pink tutu which is no surprise . . . you wear a tutu every day . . . unless you are wearing a princess dress. Sometimes you sleep in them over your pajamas too! (Some favorite books at two! Max & Ruby, A Prayer for a Child, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Ask Mr. Bear, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, The Seven Silly Eaters, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie)
