Catching an Early (Book)Worm


My firstborn has always been a bookworm. When she was 3 months old, she’d stare at the book we put in front of her. From the moment she can control her hands, she already enjoyed holding books and pretending to read. She preferred staying put and engrossing herself in books –flipping the pages, staring at the images– over crawling and playing with other toys. We thought it was only because she couldn’t move as much yet. But even now that she’s transitioning to pre-school, she still loves her books. Likewise, in daycare, she enjoys exploring the class’ bookshelf.

The secondborn, on the other hand, loves books in a different way. He likes eating them, or at least putting them in his mouth.
