The local public library donates hundreds of board books each year to the only hospital in town with a birthing center. Each baby that is born is given a board book, as well as a pamphlet explaining the importance of reading to your child. Beard and I really do appreciate the gesture, and we agree whole-heartedly with the idea that children should be introduced to books early.
This little bit of irony was too good to share, though. Our Squishy Girl was given a book entitled “Ten Little Fingers” by the local public library, and as you can see in the photo above, she does not have ten little fingers. She only has five. Oh well.
