Boo at 2 is getting quite good at entertaining herself either playing or “reading” her books. Her favourite place to read it seems is her bed.
She enjoys reading a variety of books that she choses herself at the moment they are mainly photo books with countless photos of different things such as ball, teddy bear, xylophone etc she enjoys pointing at each and telling herself what everything is. At 2 years old she’s doing really good with this and only occasionally gets stuck and calls me over to remind her what the picture is.
It’s times like this when she’s surrounded by books that I think of Quentin Blake’s illustrations of Matilda in Roald Dahl ‘s book. I hope her love of books continues as it certainly makes her happy to look at them (she often sings about what she’s looking at)!
Happiness at 2 years old, simple learning through fun.
