mike's become our bedtime reader. it was his idea to have a matinee book, a feature presentation, and an encore. the matinee is always the feature from the previous night, the feature is a new book, and then the encore is always goodnight moon. sometimes when sam has already dozed off, we still read the stories because we want to hear them. it's a lot of fun.
i'm also compiling a list of books to look for at the library. on the list now:
- the fantastic mr. wani by kanako usui
- mr. grumpy's outing by john burningham
- fairy tales by berlie doherty
- there's a nightmare in my closet by mercer mayer
if you've got a favorite book from your bedtime routine, let me know. i'm always looking for suggestions!
