When Sophia was born, my mom got her/me my favorite book from childhood - Billy & Blaze. I must have checked the book out (no exaggeration) over 200 times from my school library. I still remember it's green and ivory cover, hard back with cellophane over it. It's about 20 pages with pen & ink drawings. A boy, his horse and a dog. What's not to love!
The other night, Sophia asked me to read "The Horsey Book" and handed it to me. Despite the length, she was engaged for the whole story and I couldn't have been happier to read it to her. I will read it to her any and every night she wants me to. Hopefully, she'll enjoy reading it on her own just as I did.
