Riley is quite the little book worm. From day one she has loved any and every kind of book.
Even though she is only actually able to read a few two and three letter words at this point, she has been gravitating towards "real" books for a while now. Lately her favorite is Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein.
She even took it to school for Show and Tell yesterday.
I loved this book when I was a kid and it has been fun reaquainting myself with some of the poems. Each night before bed we fan through the pages and randomly stop at a few to read.
I am thinking about framing one or two of them for her room. I love the way Amy Meier created a whole gallery wall of these poems in her daughter's nursery.

I am not sure which one I will choose but here are a few of our favorites:
Most of the time I am marveling at how much has changed since I was a kid and I often wonder if my daughters' childhoods will be anything like mine. It is nice to see that some things, like a great book, never lose their appeal.
Have a great weekend!
