Grumpy Bird

Thanks to the recommendation of the sweetest mommy/librarian I know - I bought a new book for Lily called "Grumpy Bird". It became a FAST favorite. We've had it less than 2 weeks, and she already has it practically memorized. Here is her rendition. I know you won't understand a lot of what she is saying, so I suggest you run out and buy it. It's great! How cute is she - sitting on the rocker just reading away!?

Aww!!! While I know she is not 'reading' the book, I just wanted to let you know that she already has well developed literacy skills (I'm going to be a reading specialist, so I can see these things). You should be a proud mommmy :) Have a great week!
