Miles is reading Jannie Ho's The Haunted Ghoul Bus (written by Lisa Trumbauer). He's getting great at turning pages and loves the bright colors and shiny spot varnish in this book.

I finished reading Lucky Breaks, a beautiful follow-up to Higher Power of Lucky. I actually forgot that one of the main characters was named Miles, can't remember if I was pregnant when I read HPOL.

Our rotation for naptime board books are Freight Train, Charlie Harper's 123 Book, and Leslie Patricelli's Quiet Loud. Every time I read Freight Train I marvel at it's structure and rhythm. And the illustrations in Quiet Loud charm both Miles and I. It's a new education for me, reading aloud with the age-appropriate audience. Books I may have passed over before because I wasn't drawn to them visually now stand out for their true, active value.
