Elias loves to read, and I really want to encourage him to keep the books open. I love it when I peek into his room, and he is sitting on his yellow beanbag with a book. Often times I will catch him rambling non-english words interspersed with “ball” and “hat” thrown in. It is a precious sight.
Right now some of our favorite books are:
1. Paddington Bear Goes to Market by Michael Bond. In this story a cute bear meets his friend for a special morning treat.
2. Psalms For Young Children by Marie Helene Delval. This book has forty different Psalms paraphrased and illustrated for kid’s understanding and enjoyment. Mark reads this book to Elias as a devotional right before bed.
3. The Dragon and The Garden by N.D. Wilson. This book highlights the Gospel in the first few chapters of Genesis in a kid friendly and exciting way.
