Boynton Is Driving Me Bonkers!

My son has a lot of books.

But his favorite, by far are the Sandra Boynton books.

I don’t know why he likes them so much.

Maybe it’s because of the awesome illustrations.

Maybe it’s because of the catchy rhymes.

MOO, BAA, LA LA LA!
MOO, BAA, LA LA LA!

Maybe it’s because the books are in English and he’s used to hearing French all the time.

In any event, he LOVES them.

He loves them so much that he pretty much knows them by heart.  And, admittedly, so do I.

I mean, seriously, he’ll come and sit on me with a book and want me to read it over and over and over and over…again.

It’s gotten to a point where I can just start reciting a particular book and he’ll go into his room and grab it.  It has also gotten to a point where if I dare change things up and don’t read the story exactly as is, he’ll throw a fit.  We’re talking close-the-book-and-throw-it-then-proceed-to-scream-and-dramatically-let-his-head-touch-the-ground-between-his-legs-while-crying fit.

Thank you Sandra Boynton.  Thank you.

No, but in all seriousness.  Her books are awesome.  A big thank you to Jocelyn from The Home Tome for mentioning them to me a few months back.  I really don’t regret buying them.

A cow says MOO.  A sheep says BAA.  Three singing pigs say LA LA LA!

There I go again…
