Today is bible reading story time. Ever since I started reading story books to Reuben. He has shown a keen interest in books. This is a very good sign. Recently I bought a set of short bible stories from the Groovy Giraffe. It consists of 5 small books with different bible stories. Today I decided to read the story of Adam and Eve to Reuben.
When I opened the book, Reuben was captivated. I realised the trick about reading books to infants is to have different intonations. Infants attention span is very short. You need to be able to capture their attention for the time you are reading to them. One good thing about the book is the rich colour drawings inside. It is definitely an attraction to the kids!
After reading the book, Reuben was smiling from head to toe. Though I will never find out the real reason but I guess starting him on books is not a bad idea and reading books is trans-generational. It will never die off. Below is a video of him attempting to bite the book after I read to him. The reason why he is biting is because he is teething. I can see the front two teeth protruding out.. Well, i shall leave the teething topic for another blog post.
