My son Bryce is 11 months old. Whenever I try to read to him, he grabs the book and tries to eat it. LOL (The problem with that is, most of the books are from the library.) He doesn't like to sit still and listen or look at the pictures. And I try to read to him at different times of the day, when he may be less active. It never works. Do you think that if I read to him while he plays, that is worthwhile, then maybe eventually he will want to start looking at the pictures so I can point things out to him?
Also, this isn't about reading, but is it weird that Bryce doesn't like to cuddle or sit with my husband or I? He might crawl up to me and give me a hug, but that is few and far between. He won't sit on the couch with us or on my lap. Even when he wants to be held, he always wants to be put back down right away. Thanks for the advice and input.
