Dashiell is a different story altogether.
He is always on the move and he just won't sit still for a book. During the day I will let him just crawl around while I read, thinking that atleast I'm reading to him right?
At night I try to read atleast one but by the time we have both of them in their pajamas, he is ready to pass out. I pick up a book and he once nothing to do with it.
I've found that the books with lift the flaps keep his attention the best. And books with pictures of babies. Bonus if it has both!
The other night he literally pulled a book out of my hand and threw it on the floor. So whatever it was, was not keeping his attention.
I will keep at it and just steal moments when I can.
Here are some I will be trying this week!
I love the DK Peekaboo Series. It has both lift the flaps and pictures of babies. Woo Hoo! Dashiell loves playing with these books.
Karen Katz writes wonderful books for babies. They are beautiful and tactile and many have flaps. Here are a few we have at home that Dashiell will sit still for.
Dashiell really likes this one too. It has great rhythm which I think he enjoys. No flaps but pictures of babies.
