Catch up (part 3)

Lewis attended his first book signing…

Julia Donaldson book signing

children’s books have become a big part of our life – usually reading 4 books to Lewis each night.  Toddle Waddle is always the last book and Lewis seems to take it in like it is some kind of religious creed which is so important to his future that he must strive to understand it and take it all in.

It wasn’t till we went to this signing by Julia Donaldson that I actually realised how many of the books we read to Lewis and look forward to reading to him all come form this one author.  I had heard of the The Gruffalo before Lewis came along but never had cause to read it – its a really nice wee story.  And the first time I read the snail and the whale I totally choked up.

I look forward to reading these same books for the next few years as there will always be something in the story or illustrations to talk to Lewis about.  Whether he ever appreciates a few of them being signed by the author, only time will tell.
