This one was a milestone, so I thought I'd post it here.
Stuart Little by E.B. White
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was the first chapter book I read with Anna. Even though I got annoyed by Stuart, it was a very sweet experience to have her snuggle up to me at night and listen intently to the story. After each chapter I'd ask her if she wanted me to keep reading and she'd nod enthusiastically. Usually, I'd have to be the one to say it was time to be done. I think we finished the book in just 3 days. The best part of the whole experience was hearing her laugh at new words ("Gee Whiz!" was a favorite) or ask me during the day, "What do you think is going to happen to Margolo?" I was so excited that she was getting it! It was one of the first times in her life that I've been able to definitively mark the opening of a new chapter (wink wink), and this is one I've been waiting for for a long time.
