Big and Little
Just yesterday I wrote about Katherine’s first experience with choosing her own books from among the vast array of her school library shelves.
Again,this week, she went for some oldies but goodies. I was thrilled to be able to share Babar with her. I have to admit that the whole shooting thing in the first book has kept me from reading one of my own childhood favorites to the girls.
But then the best part became not the story but her reason for choosing them.
She said, “I chose Babar because it was the biggest book I could find. And then I chose the cat one because it was the smallest.”
So cute =)
Guns were so much more prevalent in the books we had as children – something I’m happy to have seen change!
I love her method for choosing!
