Happy Baby, Happy Mommy

We LOooooOOOoooOOove Roger Priddy books. We especially love his happy baby series. We have several in the series (in fact, I think we're only missing one!) and our one year old son keeps going back for more! Priddy's Happy Baby ABC's was the first book to hold our son's complete attention. He sat still through the entire alphabet at 6 months old! Now that he's one, he's recognizing the pictures and making the accompanying sounds to go with them. He even remembers what is coming up on the next page and is making sounds to correlate with the letters before I turn the page! The pictures in each book are crisp and clear, which I like and contain real images as opposed to cartoon characters and drawings, which I appreciate. I can't recommend them highly enough!

As you can see, we are fans of reading books upside down. I'm not sure why this is, except that apparently this is a trait inherited from his father. It doesn't quite matter how many times I turn the book right side up, he will flip it before he starts to look at it. This rankles me but daddy says it's normal so here we are. Upside down.

At any rate, I'm now making a point to buy books in this series to give to new moms because I think they are the best baby series out there. I'm glad we got started on them early as it excites me to think that he's been paying attention and is learning the basics while we've been having fun!

We like those books here, too. Unfortunately my boys are growing out of them! Sniff, sniff!

I don't think I've seen those. At least not when the boys were babies.

I like Les Miserables.

Tavis read books upside down for the first two years of his life! We would correct it for him and he would return it to wrong way up!

Now he reads them properly. But I often wonder, which way was right anyway?? Perhaps it's up to the reader's discretion.
