For the last month or two, Reed’s favorite toys have been books. Hands down. Books of all kinds. My books, his books, cookbooks, novels. I love that Reed loves books. But, for the first time, he is beginning to show a preference in books. And, though he prefers other books at other times of day, Reed always reaches for Corduroy at naptime, even if there is another book in my hand. I have read A Pocket for Corduroy three times today. And I skip parts.
