I hope all of you reading this are having a great Christmas Break! I just wanted to share a few photos from a day or so ago as my kids were introduced to one of my favorite books as a child, "The Monster at the End of This Book." We were at Barnes and Nobles playing in the Lego and train areas when I decided to look up the aforementioned book to see if it was available. Once it was located, the kids found other books in the section that they wanted - and both refused to look at my selection...at least until I decided to sit down and start reading it aloud. After a page, I had both kids sitting or standing around me listening - and pretty soon they were smiling and laughing. Both of my oldest two decided that they wanted the book - so we got it along with the sequel that features both Grover and Elmo.
Once we got home, we read both books one after the other (and I read it in character while doing my best Grover and Elmo impersonations) and the kids couldn't stop laughing. Below you will see a quick snapshot that my wife took - she tried videoing it but the video didn't work, so we had to settle for pictures. As you will see below, my little boy Grady had a huge smile on his face - and not his usual "smile for picture" smile - this time it was his real smile. Lots of fun showing them one of my favorite books from so long ago and seeing them love it just as much.
Enjoy the pictures below!
