Go, Dog. Go!

Reading stories is part of our bedtime routine. Usually, Gracie picks out 3 books for us to read to her each night. Sometimes she wants us to help her choose the books and after I make a suggestion she usually says, "no, not that one". Humph! She also tries to pick out more than 3 books depending on how successful she is at stalling bedtime. Little stinker.

Gracie does really well during story time. She sits still and listens and asks questions. For the past several months when I read a story to her I'll pause and she'll fill in the blanks with the correct word or phrase. So cute! To our amazement, just the other night, she said SHE wanted to read "Go, Dog. Go!" to us and SHE DID! Our little smarty pants has memorized the story and actually "read" it to us. We could not have been more proud of her!!! It's obvious that she loves books and I think she's on her way to becoming a great reader!

Here's a video of her "reading" - the book is "Go, Dog. Go!". The 1st time she read it to us the other night she was very focused and serious about reading the story. However, in this video, she knew I was filming her and she was definitely being a little silly. Todd says it's not her best read but it's still really cute!

Thank you Ashlee for giving her this book - I will forever cherish it as the 1st book she read out loud.
