the more that you read, the more things you will know.
One of my favorite Dr. Suess lines is, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
When it's too cold to be outside and we don't have any plans, we usually head to our local bookstore. While Lincoln is usually a wiggle worm, always moving and trying to find something new to put in his mouth, on our lap with an open book he is very still and very attentive. I think I read "Brown Bear" at least 6 times a day, and I am in love with his interest in opening every book he can pull off his bookshelf.
The only downside to his new obsession with books is when we want to browse through magazines. Because, you know. Those pages are very colorful and tear easily (or apparently have "to Lincoln" written all over them. And since Lincoln can read, this all makes sense).
