"I See..." -- Written by Bel

Most of you know that Kayleigh loves, loves, LOVES reading. She will "read" pretty much anything. And by anything, I mean, anything that remotely looks like a book or paper. Magazines, coloring books, instruction manuals, junk mail. You name it, she'll bring it to you and demand to be read to.

While she will listen to anything, she does have her favorite stories, one of which being, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?". I think it's a great book because it can cover so much more than just the story. You can do colors, animal noises, counting, facial features....tons of time on one book. She likes it SO much, that I would say that between Laura & I, we read it to her an average of 12 times a day. Not kidding. It is read so often that I can recite it from memory. Kayleigh too now knows what is coming next and can imitate most of the animal noises (including the fish lips!).

Here's a clip of Laura doing a "speed-read-through" of the book with Kayleigh, and some of K's antics. This time she mostly only said, "I see!" a lot. LOL.
