Reading a Book with Zeke

We babysat our three-month-old grandson, Zeke, tonight. My daughter tells me that he has a favorite book - imagine that! It's called I Love Colors by Margaret Miller. Each two page spread has a picture on the right (a red bow on a child's head) and on the left is a small bit of text ("red bow") on top of a brighlty colored matching background (red).

So when I shared the book with Zeke tonight I watched his eyes catch the page of color. The bright colors seemed to fascinate him. As I turned the pages, each new color caught his attention.

I am looking forward to watching our beautiful grandson learn to read!


  1. We still have our favorite board books on a shelf in the library - and our youngest is in 4th grade. "Tickle, Tickle" by Helen Oxenbury lasted through four kids and sits in the ready for the future (although we still read it just for fun).

    Thanks, Karen, for sharing. Zeke is a lucky one!

  2. Thank you for adding my link on your site. I've reciprocated and added a Talkworthy link on my site at

    I hope you got that desk cleaned off :)
