Day 14: I am thankful that Valentina is taking after her father and is developing a love of reading!
Everyday, Valentina takes down all of her books and reads them. She loves to read and unfortunately, has destroyed quite a few books doing so. For a while, we wouldn’t even let her touch them because we were afraid she’d ruin them. She’s much better at handling them but we still have to keep an eye on her. A lot of the books we’ve read over and over again and she’s at the point where she’s memorized them.
One of my favorites is a Peppa Pig book called “The Sleepy Princess.” It’s only about 5 sentences long but she sounds so cute when she “reads” it to me. She actually tells me the story like this:
“One day, there was Princess Peppa in a big castle. I’m so beautiful! I go sleep. (yawn) Who’s that? That’s Daddy Pig. The End”
I hope she continues to love books as much as Carlo does!

It's so good that she loves books! Are there any that she doesn't have that she might want? I would love to send her some:-) Gabby really likes Fancy Nancy. Has she seen those?
We really don't know what the cool books are back home. I need to get her some more Dr. Seuss books. We have Green Eggs & Ham… but in Italian.
