Why a book? (8)



For all the times they climb into your lap and make you read it back.

And hand-carved wooden toys don't need batteries, just imagination. In my childhood we didn't have washable books either. Brings back memories. Thanks William.

My pleasure, Annie. I have many good memories tied to books from my childhood and from when our own kids were growing up. Our youngest loved this one in particular, and it was handy because now our grandson is fascinated by it. Around and around we go. Imagine that!

Hi, Brad! Yes, I know exactly what you mean....

Tee Hee. Thankfully I can get my mouthful of book in wine a good musty red wine :) Read wine? Ha. Now you've got me going.

Anyway, I was with my 4 year old niece last weekend and she would "read" me Hansel and Gretel. It was hysterical. I loved her version so much, and her recall of the story and the words that were read to her was remarkable.

Beautiful. I love how the tales improve each time they’re “retold.”

“Read, Read Wine” — a wonderful song by Neil Diamond.

It’s almost like a section of rugged coastline.
