Theo has hit a new milestone- hearing his first complete chapter book. He received the movie Charlotte's Web, but of course just like I always want to read the book before the movie I wanted him to as well, so we got out Charlotte's Web again. We had tried it last year, but he just wasn't quite ready for a book without picture yet (unless, it was this book, which he loves to giggle at).
He was ready this time. And the few small illustrations in the book helped. I was afraid he would be extremely upset when the spider died, as he is typically very emotional about such things, but he just said, "I'm not sad. Spider's have to die. There's a time to live, and a time to fade. All animals have to die and some will have children to live on."
And he says he learned that on Dinosaur Train. FYI.
