Audio Books

Love the kids audio books, Very good for long (or short) care rides or instead of TV. Lately Tom Chapin's Sing A Whale Song and Maira Kalman's FIREBOAT: The Heroic Adventures of the John J. Harvey have been winners. He keeps singing the "Good garage is bio-degradable" song - which is very cute. We also like in Fireboat how they hande the 9/11 tradegy - of course that leads to many questions and we almost got the dreaded - "why did someone attack the building's". He thinks there is a scary scene in Marc Brown's Arthur Babysits so we have not been able to listen to that one though.

over and over

most of time Matthew loves reading the same books over and over again. You would think I would have memorized Cinderella, Courtney, Critters, One Fish Two Red Fish Blue Fish by now.We did read a new selection from the library recently however, "Bunny Days" by Tao Nyeu. Uggh it was not good - mainly about bunnies get their tails chopped off, made me think Matthew would get the idea to do that to something... a "F".
