Team Reader: Baby Edition

— feeling excited
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cloth Book by Eric Carle (2014-06-05) - Eric Carle;

A few days ago, one of my cousins posted a video of her infant rolling over for the first time. To protect their privacy, I won't repost it here, but believe me, it was A-Dorable.


But what really brought tears to my eyes was not the baby's physical feat, it was her mental effort: It was clear that WHY she was rolling over at that moment was to get her book - Eric Carle's "Very Hungry Caterpillar," in a cloth edition specifically designed for infants.


#TeamReader - we have recruited another one. I'm certain she'll be a life member.
