Omar Loves to Read
Hi, my name is Omar. I am eight months old. I am growing and learning every day. I like clapping my hands. I like playing peekaboo. I like feeding myself crackers. I love reading!
Mom reads to me every day. She knows reading is good for my brain. She knows I learn a lot from reading. The more she reads to me, the better reader I will be.
Mom finds me wonderful books. She knows I like the ones with bright colors. I like pictures of animals and toys. I like pictures of trucks and children.
Books are so much fun! I like books with pages you can touch and feel. I like to feel the soft kittens. Some books play music. Others make fire truck noises. The pop-up books surprise me. I love books so much. I have even tried to eat them! Board books are hard to chew. (Mom likes those books best!)
