Once Upon a Story

Remember when I shared the books I was giving my two children for Valentine’s Day?

Preschooler received two books with a same-name character, a ballerina.  Selected for her love of dancing/spinning, and the enjoyment of seeing her name in print.

Baby received a dinosaur board book reflective of his crashing, smashing, destructive nature.

Apparently, I selected poorly.

Preschooler gave me a cursory “Thank you”, and then immediately asked if we could read her brother’s book.

“It’s smells [scratch and sniff], Mommy!”




And so we did.  And she sniffed.  And she laughed.  And the book was enjoyed.

Which is really the point, so I guess I didn’t do too badly after all 😉

Happy Friday, friends!

    Oh, I’ve definitely had that happen before! I’m sure she’ll love them once she actually reads them!

    Was it a scratch and sniff book? My kids love those still. Which one? Glad some of the books worked out. It’s so hard to pick books for your own kids when they get lots of exposure to books! They become aficionados which is not a bad thing!
