Book of the Week
In truth, this entry should be titled book (or at least author...) of the last 12 to 18 months. Meredith loves her Berenstain Bears books, and has for quite some time now. She has this freakishly amazing auditory memory, and one of my favourite memories is of her 'reading' the Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist to me when she was just barely three years old. Word. For. Word. We've accumulated a few of the books from garage sales and our own purchases, and are lucky enough to have on loan to us the entire library of the Virden Pooles' Berenstain Bears book collection. Fun to think I'm reading the same thing to Meredith that Aunt Judy and Uncle Ross read to Airdrie, Ashleigh and Erin!
The current favourite of the Berenstain Bears books, is "The Truth". Like all of their books, there is a moral or lesson to the story, and this one is (not surprisingly...) extolling the virtues of telling the truth. I wonder if she is so taken by this book right now because she herself is testing out the concepts of truth and honesty.
She's always got a willing audience when she feels like reading aloud, be it human or feline!
