reading with the toddler

We have been reading to Dipdip one particular book about Jesus and the angels. Her attention span seems to have increased as she gets older. She loves to listen and sit with any of us so we could read to her the contents as we leaf through the pages of the book. This was a used book that we bought on sale at a  department store.

Lately though she would also like to have the book to herself so that she could just leaf through the pages herself. It was when she tried tearing the front page (glad it was just the foreword page) that we decided to keep it for the time being until she is responsible enough to handle it with care.


  1. Yes, children always do that. They are liable to tear the pages of the book. That is why you should just read to her until she realizes that she should not tear the pages of a book. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  2. my daughter also loves books. just sometimes in her excitement the pages get torn. so if it's expensive books like the children's bible her daddy gave her, i really watch her.

  3. bro mel/jellybelly: thanks for your comments. yeah, i'll have to make sure that we are watching her over
