At last count, I have over 1500 children's books. Yup, that's just the kid's books, not counting my own books. Part of that is from teaching...but I have to admit, all those books are really coming in handy right now.
Because Cole is a READER. He reads all the time. Just today, we spent about 3 hours total reading. And if I didn't have all those books, we would be reading Eric Carle for 3 hours a day.
I KNEW all those books would be worth moving 3+ times...
Cole even reads during snack sometimes...I know I shouldn't let him, but I tend to be a little permissive when it comes to reading :)
