Scissors and Books
Eleanor is getting better with scissors, although I cut this out. She likes to cut little bitty pieces of paper. She also likes to read. We just finished an hour long reading marathon and only stopped because my voice was tired. We read:
- Elliot's Bath
- Elliot's Shipwreck
- Elliot Bakes a Cake
- Elliot's Noisy Night
- Knuffle Bunny (I love this one)
- Bunny Cakes (Max and Ruby)
- King Bidgood's in the Bathtub
- Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
The Elliot Moose books (by Andrea Beck) have become all the rage around here. Last week we checked one out at the library (Elliot Gets Stuck). When it was time to return it, Eleanor cried out, "Not my Elliot book! I love my Elliot book!" So, after we returned it, we checked out four more. I've read them each at least twice a day since then.
She reads books by herself too. I like her paraphrases.
