My little Maddiecakes loves books. I mean she absolutely adores them. Gretchen has read to her since day one, and it really shows. When they go to their local library, Madelynn pulls books to read – either with Mommy or by herself. At home she will go and grab more books for her parents to read to her, adding to the pile they already have beside them. And now she “reads” to herself.
The video is dark because as soon as Madelynn notices the camera she stops reading. She is reading an issue of Babybug, a sturdy magazine for children ages six months to two years.
Madelynn is my favorite model to use in First Book-Trumbull County ads, such as this one:

She was so excited to be around all of those books. It had been a few months since they had gone to the library, having attended storytime at a bookstore (along with her grandmother and cousin who also live in Texas).
|Look at all of these books!!|
I had to laugh when I received these photos around Thanksgiving. It was after midnight, and Gretchen sent two photos and this explanation:
"These are all the books that Maddie picked out for bedtime. We are half thru. I read 3 books, she got out of bed and brought me more."
|Not asleep - just blinded by the flash.|
|Because Mommy didn't have enough books to read.|
This little girl makes my heart sing. Her love of books, so evident at such a young age (she is 17 months, four days old), makes her librarian aunt very proud.
