Princess Sophia turned one in January and I thought it would be fun to share what books Sophia pulls from the bookshelf on the daily. She has these memorized and gets so excited as we read them.

A collection of 12 read-aloud stories featuring the Sesame Street Muppets.
Sesame Street Bedtime Storybook is old, and the binding has dried out from being stored in a garage at Sophia’s Great Grandma’s house, but she loves the illustrations in this classic book. While the stories are too long to hold her attention we generalize the story and have her point to familiar characters. Naturally Elmo and Cookie Monster are her favorite. This is a beautiful collection of stories just the right length for bedtime. While it is no longer published copies are available from a multitude of sources.

Series: Llama Llama
Published by: Penguin
Pages: Hardcover, 40
Llama Llama has new neighbors! Nelly Gnu and her mama stop by for a play date, but Llama's not so sure it's time to share all his toys. Maybe just his blocks? It could be fun to make a castle with Nelly . . . But wait--Nelly has Llama's little Fuzzy Llama! The fun turns to tears when Fuzzy Llama is ripped in two, "all because of Nelly Gnu!" Mama comes to the rescue and fixes Fuzzy, but she makes it clear: "I'll put Fuzzy on the stairs, until you're sure that you can share." Fun to read aloud and helpful to children and parents alike, Llama Llama Time to Share is for any child who needs a little encouragement in sharing.
I’ve already reviewed Llama Llama Time to Share, on Nonna’s Corner and we have since picked up more Llama Llama stories, but this remains her favorite. As we approach the part of the story where Nelly and Llama have a fight and pull on Fuzzy the stuffed llama Sophia gets so animated. She points and tried to turn ahead to the big illustration in the middle of the book. When the inevitable happens I ask Sophia who can fix Fuzzy Llama and at first I would say, “Can Mama?” and she would nod and smile yes. Now she yells, “Mama, mama, mama!” She loves the illustration where Mama Llama fixing Fuzzy Llama. I love watching Sophia try to read it on her own, flipping the pages and speaking gibberish.
