I can't for the life of me understand why people pay £6, 7, 8 for children's story books. Not when you can buy beautiful copies second-hand for less than a tenth of the price. All these books bought this morning were priced between 30-50p. I'm sure the book stores and authors will have a different view, but still...
Bedtime routine in this house includes a story every night, and then Ruby will ask for a pile of books to be left on her bed for her to flick through until she drops off.
I can often hear her making up her own words to the pictures, or remembering the stories that have been read to her recently.
I always pick up books for her whenever I see them in charity shops, consequently she probably has enough to rival the British Library now. In fact, I'm surprised the Old Man hasn't introduced the Dewey Decimal System.
She loves to read them over and over, but once she deems them too babyish for her, they are donated back ready for another child to enjoy. I like to think this cycle will continue over and over.
