It did not caught us by surprise when her swimming instructor told us that Nadra learns very well through visuals and sounds. Since newborn, she have been exposed to books, flashcards and music.
So when she picked up a book instead of a toy and intensely flipping it, we felt overjoyed. I love to read, and I hope Nadra will too. There is really no advantage in reading too much.
Her recent obsession is Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney.
This is such a beautiful book. The content is so sweet. It perfectly expresses a mother’s love for the child. I can read it over and over again everyday and still Nadra enjoys it every single time.
I have been ordering books weekly for Nadra through Book Depository. The books are so much cheaper than those in store fronts. Yes, they shipped worldwide, and it’s free! The only downside, it may take approximately 3 weeks for the books to arrive. However, this is not a concern for me as I have been ordering weekly and Nadra will have new books almost every week.
At only 6 months of age, Nadra have already accumulated book piles as high as her height. By the time we get our own home, we can have a mini library, just for her.
