Tea and books
While on our quest to find big sister a teenage worthy birthday gift we dropped by the Pottery Barn Kids store. We spent a great deal of time in there exploring all the toys which are quite fun. She really had fun with the tea set as she put her Micky doll in the seat across from her. They chatted it up over a spot of tea. As play evolved she discovered the small display of books. She climbed up to the desk and flipped through each book. I was impressed that she was so focused on the books. How endearing is was to watch her spend just as much time "reading" the books as she did playing with the toys. Literacy starts young and is a gift that lasts a lifetime. Taking time for books each day where ever you may be is a good lesson I was reminded of by my little gal.
