Tonight before bed, I read Radcliffe his favorite book, ‘The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.’ This has been his favorite and is a huge fan of the app on his iPad.
Tonight, however, was different. He became obsessed with the book jacket and why the book was different. He wanted to know if the writer made the jacket because the book would get cold at night and this could be his blanket of sorts. He began to take it and then ‘redress’ the book in its jacket.
Then, as I tucked him in tonight, he said, ‘Mom, make sure the jacket is on tight when you go to bed. The book might get lonely and sad.’
So glad he is as attached to books as I am…..
