This is what my last year has been about. Haven‘t really had the time to start, let alone finish any of my own books. But he‘s been enjoying mommy reading to him his books. His favorite at the moment is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Plus we‘ve moved again and most of my books are still in storage. Can‘t wait to get them out and organize my bookshelves when I order new ones.
Love that my big boy (9) is rereading an old favorite. We‘re never too old for picture books! My little guy (7) - who‘s actually bigger than big bro now 😅 - is rereading Dog Man for probably the 4th or 5th time!

Before, I thought this book was too visually confusing. I didn't like how it deviated from the regular alphabet.
However, I changed my mind. Julian just needed to grow into this read. Tonight, he was fascinated by the letters being characters with unique qualities. At the end, he was already identifying letters by their shapes and wanted to practice calling them out. This was a big turning point in his development! My son is learning to read!
