This session is close to my heart. These girls and their mama love to read! I’m a self-confessed book addict, and have many wonderful memories of reading with my children when they were tiny. We still read together as often as possible, even though they can read by themselves now.
The morning I spent with this gorgeous trio was food for my soul. I was in my element, listening to stories and poems being read and capturing everything going on. We started off with The Velveteen Rabbit. I hadn’t heard the story before. The part where the Velveteen Rabbit was talking to the Skin Horse is my favourite part. The Skin Horse says:
“Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
After reading books and poems together there was loooooots of snuggling! (And laughing, and giggling and tickles!)
