Aww that's cute. It was just a random book I grabbed at the grocery store one day and boy am I glad I did. She repeats the sounds when I'm reading it too. I hope she starts sitting for stories since I think reading is so important :)

My son is 5 and is just starting to read. He will read words I write on paper but not a story yet. We do have story time every night and I find what he likes varies greatly. He does like Dr. Seuss, Robert Munsch, Eric Carlisle. He has library time every week and has brought home a halloween book every time since the beginning of the year, so I guess he likes those :)
My 18 month olds favourite book right now is called Blue Hat, Green Hat. We read it about 50 times a day. Other than that she will sit for the odd story but not very often.

My son didn't really like reading story books, but loved his audio CDs of the Harry Potter books (unabridged, read by Stephen Fry). What he did love to read (and still does) is encyclopaedias and dictionaries - luckily we have over 400 of these sort of reference books, so he's never without reading material!!! He's 12 BTW!
I bought him the childrens set of Shakespeare stories (same Shakespearian language and all that, but written in a story-book style rather than a play style) when he was around 7 and he loved to read those. He's also read some Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, and some Native American Indian stories that my cousin sent over from Canada.

Our son is only 3 so he can't read just yet however he LOVES being read to. It's amazing how long he will sit still when it's story time. I swear I read him like 50 books last night. I started reading to him (this may sound weird) as soon as I found out I was pregnant. He loves Dr. Seuss, Curious George, Bill Martin Jr. books, Joan Baur books and right now he's really into the I Spy series. Our son has more books than I know what to do with!

My son is 5 and just learning how to read on his own. He gets very frustrated when I try to get him to read a book to me. He will sit down and go through his "star" words for school everyday with no problem. He loves to have stories read to him. Since he was a baby we always read at least 2 stories every night. He has a wide array of books, some of his favorites are Dr. Suess, the Lama Lama collection (I don't know who the author is), Berenstein Bears, and If you take a Mouse to The Movie series,

My oldest likes to read books with action, mystery..his favorite is the Fly Guy books.
My 1.5 year old is not in to books, he will make me flip to his favorite page, call out what he sees (if he even does that) then take the book from me
