If you stick around for any length of time here at The Sunny Patch, you'll discover that I love to read. We have piles of books all over the house, that just keep growing and growing! Unfortunately, my daughter has yet to catch the reading bug. She would much rather spend her time playing with Legos, My Little Pony, or other toys. But, while she's playing, she does love a good read aloud or audio book! So I take advantage of those daily play times to fit in lots of good read-aloud books for kids.
