Adventures in Reading


Mom is in charge of holding most of my books. But this book is soft and fuzzy, so she lets me be in charge.


Sometimes I have trouble turning the pages.


So I lick them instead.


The worst is when I drop the book and it disappears. Mom tried to explain something called object permanence to me. I just wanted my book back.
