First, let me tell you about the audiobooks. I picked a few up for Poppy last week at the library. They're the ones that come with a picture book. I uploaded the cd's to an old ipod and gave it to Poppy along with an old-school set of headphones. This girl is hooked. She absolutely loves being able to follow along with the books that she can't quite read yet. The first couple of days, we literally had to limit the time she could listen to them because she wanted to listen all day long! Now it's been a week and the novelty is slowly wearing off, but she still loves them. I went online and requested a few more books - they definitely come in handy when we are in the car, or when I'm too busy to sit down and read with her myself.
