This is Isaac busy in his cot, reading his book of nursery rhymes. He hardly sits in his cot quietly like that. This was one time he did, and that's coz he's reading a book. He flips the pages like a pro - from one end of the book to the other end, then he'd flip over, look at the cover for awhile, and start flipping it back the other direction.
We read to Isaac all the time. I would read to him English books, while hubbs would read to him Chinese ones. He would be able to identify the book too - those that we read to him very often.
We have this Dr Seuss book that does the alphebets this way:"Big A, little a, what begins with A? Auntie Annie's alligator, A! A! A! Big B, little b, what begins with B? Benny and his bouncing ball! B! B! B! Big C, little c, what begins with C? " and so it goes. Actually I can't recall the exact words, just how the alphabets get introduced, and it's easy to make things up as you go along (just start with the relevant alphabet!) so it's easy to read that to him coz we can kinda remember it by heart. So now, whenever we start saying:"Big A, little a, what begins with A?" then he would look around for the book, and hand it to us! :)
Hubbs bought this chinese book with classic chinese short poems, and would always read it to Isaac in the living room. One day, in the bedroom, hubbs recited out loud the first two lines of a poem from this chinese book that he always reads to Isaac. Isaac looked at hubbs, smiled, and crawled out all the way from the bedroom, to the living room, and took THE book, and handed it to hubbs!!! Wow!!! Hubbs was sooooooo pleased with him!!! hahahhaha :)
