Lifting the Flaps

Isabelle has been loving the lift the flap books more than ever.  She pages through them lifting the flaps on her own.  However this morning, after witnessing her lift the flaps on Sebastien Braun’s Peekaboo Baby, she handed it to me to read aloud to her.  I happily obliged.  I encouraged her to lift the flap on the first page, which reveals a baby wearing pink.  She was happy to do that.  But then she wouldn’t lift the rest of the flaps.  She wanted me to do it.  What’s that about?

Alas, I cannot complain.  She wanted me to read to her.  Sometimes we all like to be read to, right?  (And besides, she’s starting to take her first steps with our help, so perhaps she wanted to be babied a bit.)


I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment below.
