We randomly picked out a book from the library called More Bears, & it instantly became a favorite. We have read it over & over & over, but the reason that it inspired this book was because it created two firsts for Matteo.
It was the first book where Matteo really got the humor in it, & he cracked up every time we turned the page to the tune of, “MORE BEARS!” There’s also a punch line at the end of the book that he thought was hilarious, which was absolutely adorable.
Not only did we share a lot of giggles over this book, but it was the first book that he wanted to read to me without any help. He looked at the pictures & made up a similar story & “read” the whole book to me.
When he finished “reading” I said, “I love when you read to me! Thanks so much!” And he said, “Wokkum.” (Welcome)
