I don't know what it is about this book but Lauren loves it! She keep saying, "read it again, read it again." She has a ton of other books but she loves this one the most. She has memorized it so much, I thought she was reading it for real. She does "Your Baby Can Read" daily so I wouldn't be surprised if she starts reading soon on her on. She' 2 years old now. Oh, I am now following you on Twitter. I sent you a comment.

As a former first grade teacher, you should know that reading a book over and over till they can seem like they are reading it themselves because it's memorized is an important pre-reading skill. They ARE learning some sound-symbol associations – "here is what the word dog looks like". Keep reading to and with them – it makes all the difference!
