Suddenly, for the first time in Art's little life, he is interested in looking at books on his own and even telling the story to Lewis or me! I tell you, four years old seems to have magically brought a bucket-load of confidence to our first-born son. Even just a few weeks ago he would have scoffed at reading to me. "But I don't know how!" And I would remind him that he could read the pictures or make up his own story. The last few days he's been doing just that. Here he is reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear to Lewis in what he has named his "library" after bringing armful after armful of books downstairs.
