To read is a fundamental four letter word.
I love reading books with the three-year-old. He loves reading them, too. Tho sometimes his "reading" doesn't so much involve actual... you know... reading... but looking at the page and telling me a story in a language that I don't understand.
So when he couldn't find the books he wanted me to read this evening, I offered to make up a story and tell it to him. I got the equivalent of one page in and he asked me to find him a book, any book, to read instead.
And I still can't find those books.
