I’m pretty excited to see that the piglet seems to show signs of loving his books.
His introduction to books and story-telling happened when he turned 3 months old. He loved it when I opened picture books and read out to him. He even started showing his preferences. He didn’t like (and still doesn’t like) single picture on a page books. He loves the sing-song of a longish narrative.
Enter books like The Little Mermaid and the Spot series.
Here’s a photo of the snubnose reading to piglet when he was around 4 months or so. He was so engrossed with Spot, he still loves these books…
He even skims through big people books trying to imitate me…
Magazines as well. Caught the piglet browsing through Grazia yesterday 🙂
Piglet at 13 months picking, choosing, and reading his own books…
He’s also already developed his first literary crush. The focus of his adoration is a little pink mouse that dances ballet. Angelina Ballerina…he loves her so much that every night before going to bed, he absolutely has to listen to the story, some of the songs, in between peppering the iPad with his kisses when she comes on-screen. Couple of times, he has even stepped onto the iPad trying to go through the screen to be with her 🙂
Sometimes, he tries to be her. Unfortunately, the photos of him twirling were too blurry to post 🙁 …
We’ve tried to get videos of him engrossed in books, but the moment we start filming, he gets distracted to run and catch the camera. Sigh!
So, you are wondering what is the point of this post? There’s no point really. Just felt that it’s been a long time since I posted about piglet and realized it’s because it’s pretty near impossible to capture all the things he does.
And there’s no point trying to get the perfect photo/video before waiting to blog about him. It’s not going to happen and so…that’s why you get this half-baked post with a bunch of blurry photos.
Sorry for this, but I just had to, had to post about him and Angelina Ballerina. How could I not??? His first literary crush!!!
So, what was your first bookish crush?
