Dewey Decimal Dilemma

A few weeks ago I started taking Maxfield to the library on Saturdays while Wyatt naps. We read a couple of books while we are there and then we pick out a few books to take home with us. Sometimes we even take out a few movies.

Every week we ask the librarian for suggestions based on our previous weeks likes. For instance we read Ted by Tony DiTerlizzi and the next week the librarian suggested Jimmy Zangwow's Moon Pie Adventure also by DiTelrizzi (we also discovered that Diterlizzi wrote something called the Spiderwick Chronicles which I am sure Max will like in a few years and we learned that one of DiTerlizzi's influences is Maxfield Parrish which is very cool with us).

This past Saturday, I was flipping through the movies and I watched Max a few aisles away pick out his books from the picture book section. He took his time making sure he would like his selections and then he came over to me to choose his movies.

This was his selection this week.




Max is fascinated with Lauren's pregnancy and when he saw this he had to have it. I have no idea what it was doing in the kid's section. I think the Dewey Decimal system is messed up.

I bet Lauren would be okay reading that to him before bedtime! LOL! It's great to see he has taken such an interest in the new baby. Surely that will make the transition easier for him.

Just think of the extra couple years of peace that will give you when he's a teenager and still grossed out over the traumatic things he sees in that book!

:)

I love that you take him to the library.

That is hilarious! I remember my second son was about Max's age when our third son was due. He was pretty interested in the pregnancy too.

I hope he likes the Sword in the Stone movie.

I wonder if they have a proper name for the "penis-pit" in there for future bath times?

Hey, it's great that he is interested. He will be the most informed kid in his group of freinds.
