Women sometimes do crazy things when we’re pregnant, wouldn’t you agree?
Between cravings and hormones, our behavior can get a little unpredictable.
Over ten years ago, soon after I found out I was pregnant for the first time, I drove 45 MINUTES just to get to the nearest bookstore. (Steve and I lived in lovely middle of nowhere, Texas back then.)
I happily went in, baby Jonathan in utero, and bought Honey for a Child’s Heart: The Imaginative Use of Books in Family Life by Gladys Hunt. It’s a fabulous title I’ve talked and written about dozens of times since then.
With lists recommending everything from starter board books to the best chapter books, I was in heaven reading its pages. I highlighted, underlined, and built up a little home library of children’s classics before I ever headed into the delivery room to bring that baby boy home.
I couldn’t wait to help my new little one fall in love with books.
