Ben enjoys reading, especially if the books are about animals, or if I sing as I read to him. He now has favorite books; here are the most recent:
My very first Mother Goose (which he calls Molly Goose), edited by Iona Opie with extraordinary illustrations by Rosemary Wells;
The entire Eric Carle Library, including The Very Quiet Cricket and From Head to Toe; and
two Raffi songs to read books, including Wheels on the Bus and Down by the Bay. I usually sing the bulk of the verse and Ben provides the closer.
Yesterday, he chose a new book, based on what the cover art appeared to promise: the O’Reilly Pocket Guide to GNU Emacs.
