Well, Flickr is down, so I won’t be able to post about the art I originally planned on uploading, but now is a good time to share a couple of the books Jaylene has insisted on reading daily…


The first one is exciting for her because she can read it all by herself (now). It explains the basics of the day clearly and turning the flaps is always fun for her. She usually reads that one to me, and I read the next one.


This one is also delightful and Jaylene really gets into the rhyme scheme. I hear her reciting it as she goes about her tasks and play.
