    This is my DS all day long at the moment. Walking around "ehh ehh ehh" shoving books in my face or reversing into my lap. Haha it started quite suddenly a few weeks back. Prior to this he was quite happy flicking through the books on his own.

    I'm still loving it! My 14 month old has been obsessed with books since he was around 8 months, and he certainly has his faves! At least it means I can 'read' to him while completing other tasks because I can recite many of our regular stories while he turns pages for me. The current faves are Where is the Green Sheep, Hello Baby and Time for Bed.. anyone picking up a theme!? Thank goodness for Mem Fox!

    My 1 year old is constantly demanding that books be read to him.... and we love it! As a teacher I always find it sad when occassionally you teach a young child who doesn't know how to hold a book, turn pages properly or understand that the text and pictures have meaning. If you are frustrated with the repetitive nature of reading the same old books to your children then a big YAY FOR YOU!!! .... It means they've had a lot of literacy stimulation and their love of books is because you found it important to foster their positive attitude.

    Ahhh yes, wombat stew and hungry caterpillar are favourites ATM. I do get sick of them but I'll live.

    I thought DS was losing interest in books this week. I felt myself missing the closeness of all that reading time, hahahahaha what a silly Mummy. He recovered today though, abandoned his drawing time to bring over a stack of books...."weeed"... Awwww. Time for another library trip.

    Set a time and a number of books to be read. eg. 3 books before bed time. Say no at other times in the day if it annoys you. Distract your LO with another activity.
