Ellie loves Sandra Boynton.
And farm animals.
She's a big fan of Are You a Cow? and lately, she's been "reading" it with me. I asked if she'd be willing to be videoed, and she tried to trade me a plastic bracelet for my iPhone. I traded back and caught some of the "reading" magic.
PS. If you are my mom (or Matt's mom, or my stepmom), yes, Ellie is reading the actual words, even if they're on the wrong pages. If you're anyone else, you probably can tell that she just memorized the book.
