Have Books. Let's Read!

Found this cute idea on Pinterest and had to have it for Maddie's room.  It helps because instead of just grabbing a book she has to ask me for it.  It helps with her speech and it looks so cute!

Her favorite current books are: A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni, It's OK to be Different by Todd Parr (a gift from her cousin, Tillie), Pete the Cat and his four Groovy Buttons by James Dean & Eric Litwin Olivia save the Circus by Ian Falconer, Llama Llama Night Nighty by Anna Dewdney & Night Night book by Marianne Richmond

We went to our first Speech evaluation last week.  Maddie scored above average for her language skills but we really need to work on our articulation.   She is talking so much more now, singing all the time and to make things more difficult she is incorporating Vietnamese into her speech too.  As her mama, I of course understand everything that she says but for others not so much.  We will be starting speech therapy in a few weeks but until then we have some homework for Maddie.  She has to start to learn to blow from her mouth and not her nose.  So, that means practicing blowing bubbles, blowing water from a straw or in the pool.  And our two main letters to practice are B and P.
