It's day 2 and already the titles are repeating

It was our first back to work day and we read:
  • Touch and Feel Tractor, a Dorling Kindersley board book that Reid really loves despite it being, well, a board book. She has enjoyed rubbing the smooth hood, counting the lights, touching the chunky tires and bumpy field (differently shaped corrugated board) and a spiky bale of straw for the last 3 years.
  • Tummy Trouble, a Clifford the Big Red Dog book, by Josephine Page and illustrated by Ken Edwards - Reid giggles at the silly dogs eating more than they should although I don't think that she has ever eaten so much that her belly troubled her.
  • Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne, one of the Discovery Toys Reading Together at Home collection - Reid hasn't chosen this book in a while. With all of the zoo visits we made in 2007, Reid and I were able to name all of the African animals in the book. Reid liked "knowing" about the fruits being eaten when the protagonist did not.
  • I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato by Lauren Child, again, even though Reid gobbled tomatoes happily at supper and even though Ken seems a bit weary of this particular text now that he has read it daily since the 29th.
