Ben LOVES books...I cannot emphasize this enough! I often say he will read books for as long as you will read them to him. To put this to the test I sat on the floor with him for an HOUR last week and read to him. He sits perfectly still in fear if he moves one inch I may stop. He will point and smile occasionally but he is for the most part a very serious little reader, studying each page. I ended the book marathon when both feet fell asleep and my throat was getting sore. Ben on the other hand continued looking at the books after I got up!
