Favorite Book of the Week: How the Crawfish Got Its Shell

So all kids go through phases where they want you to read ONE book over and over and over and over...

Lily's book of THIS week is: How the Crawfish Got Its Shell, by Cathy Lowry

She's been running around the house doing things and, when asked why she did them, yelling, "Because IIIIIIII'mmmmm a mosquito and thaaaaaaaaaaat's what I do!"

Also, Lily has started appropriately incorporating the Cajun-French exclamations into her vocabulary--which is adorable. She'll be running along, stumble over something and yell, "Oh yi, yi! Ca fait mal," loosely translated, "Ahhhhh! Ahhhhh! It hurts!"  It's hard not to laugh--she's just so cute randomly yelling in French. 

Jello is even getting in on the book action--she IS hearing this book two or three times a day, whether she wants to or not, I don't know why I'm surprised. When she wiggles into a position that is terribly uncomfortable for me, I say , "Jello! Why you got to wiggle like that!?" To which Eric replies on her behalf, "Because IIIIIIIIIIIIIII am a baby and thaaaaaaaaaaaaat's what I do!"

Overall, it's a super-cute book and very appealing to the pre-school crowd if anybody is looking for something different to give their kids as a gift this year.

The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear, By Don & Audrey Wood
