But Not the Hippopotumas

Mathias picked up a Sandra Boynton board book and toddled awkwardly towards their big dog and plunked down with a thunk.

“She can’t read it to you,” his mommy laughed.

So he read it to the dog.  Even if he didn’t quite succeed at getting that thing open on the first few tries: he knew the words by heart. “Ah BAH. AH BAH. Ah bah bah  bah!”

Oh that’s wonderful! What a great visual – I can just see his little fingers wrestling with the pages. Happy birthday, Mathias!

So adorable! And I love that he knows books are a great thing to share.

Your mom and your dad
To read, will be glad
But not your giant doggy.

Give Grandma a look,
And she’ll read you a book,
But not your giant doggy.

Climb in Grandpa’s lap,
And he’ll read like a snap,
But not your giant doggy.

Sorry, it just doesn’t have the same ring.
