I have waited patiently for the day when Reece would come running, with a book in hand, to ask me to read him a story, and it has finally come. For about two months now, Reece has been the one to initiate our story time each day, and I love it.
He usually grabs a book from the shelf in his room, comes running out calling “time for a story”. Often I make us a cup of tea, grab us a little snack and we cuddle up on the sofa and read.
Right now, he has a favourite, which we are pretty much reading every day, at least once, if not two, three, four...you get the picture, times a day.
Peter in Blueberry Land by Elsa Beskow is a magical story of a little boy upset when we can't find any berries to pick for his mother's birthday. Along comes the Blueberry King and a great adventure begins. The imaginative story and the colourful pictures make this book a pleasure to read as many times as my little man wishes.
