Finally got ourselves over to the public library after a several-month hiatus. Here are Birdie’s reviews of the favorites:
Momma: Ella, which was your favorite story in this book?
Ella: The Pants Story (What Was I Afraid Of) is a good book. He was afraid of the pants but he says “hi pants!” now.
Momma: We liked this book, didn’t we? It shows you what you are supposed to do, and what things you aren’t supposed to do. What are your favorite No No’s?
Ella: Drawing on the puppy, and putting toys in the potty.
Momma: What are your favorite Yes Yes’?
Ella: Wearing Daddy’s hat.
Momma: You said this was your favorite book, what did you like so much about it?
Ella: He eats lots of food and he gots a stomach ache.
Momma: His tummy didn’t feel good, huh?
Ella: No, Momma. He gots a STOMACH-ACHE!
Momma: Okay….what’s your favorite picture?
Ella: The cocoon.
Ella: Cuz it gots stripes.
Momma: Sounds like a good reason to me. Thanks for your book review. We’ll do it again next time.
Ella: But Momma!
Ella: Porter’s favorite book was Personal Penguin.
Momma: Okay. Thanks, Birdie.
(Porter had no comments as to why he preferred the penguin book.)
