Letters from a Desperate Dog by Eileen Christelow

I can't believe how fast he's growing. Almost 2 and a half. He hasn't mastered the art of talking quite yet, but it doesn't stop him from trying. Yesterday, he was standing on my knees and called out to his siblings. "Look at me, Yoel." I was so tickled.

When we were reading Letters from a Desperate Dog by Eileen Christelow, he's reading right there alongside me. It's like an echo. When I realized this, I read in shorter sentences to give him time to catch up. Now, he can't wait 'til we read to the kids next. He'll come to me with a book and say, "Come everybody, time to read." Then he echoes alongside me for the duration of the story. My children loves this story of a dog who is desperate to please his master who always seems to be bellowing about something or the other. We've read this book many times since we 'discovered' it a few days ago.
