Today’s book of choice was the Chuggington Look & Find book. There isn’t much to “read” in this book, but Sammy enjoys looking for the items in each picture. He has completely outgrown this book – it’s way too easy for him. We should probably get him some I-Spy books or Where’s Waldo books. I always let Sammy pick the book, and as you can see he chooses these train, truck, and dinosaur books. Maybe tomorrow I’ll suggest a book, something a bit more substantive.
I asked him what books he read at school today and he said, “I read The Family Book again. I like that book.” So, I looked it up on Amazon and it looks like a wonderful book about different families.
This is Banned Books Week, and I just ordered And Tango Makes Three for Sammy. It’s based on a true story about two male penguins who are “a little different” – they’re gay. And they adopt a baby. Truly a modern family.
Go ahead – read something banned to your children. Open their minds to our world that is rich and complex.
