February was a heck of a month reading-wise.
My son continues enjoying being read to - and looking at books himself, as well. We started taking him to Mother Goose on the Loose at the library on Saturday mornings. It’s basically a few nursery rhymes along with a story. He absolutely loves it - the smile on his face is worth the half hour it lasts.
A number of the books I’ll mention below came from the library. My son likes Sesame Street - especially Elmo - and animals right now.
My daughter just turned two months. I try to read to her, and often when I do it’s a children’s book that happens to be in arms reach while I’m holding her. She doesn’t like to be set down - she much prefers to be held.
A few times when I start reading to my daughter, my son wants to join in. That’s why you see below that I read Baby! Talk! to both my son a daughter - I read it to them at the same time.

Books I Read to My Daughter
I read five different books to my daughter:
The Books I Read for Me
I finished the last chapter (or is it tale?) in the book I was reading - Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street. The last tale - called “In Defense of Sterling” - was about how the world banks rallied to keep the British Pound from losing value. This story took place sometime in the 60s - the decade before the decimalisation of the pound sterling.
My initial plan was to alternate between fiction and nonfiction books. However, the past few books I’ve read were straight-up nonfiction, so I decided I needed to read a few fiction books to keep up.
I won’t go into too much detail about what each book is about (click on their links and visit the Amazon site to read their description) but I will say both are science-fiction books. Screen is more a dystopian type, whereas Caught in Time is a time-travel book.
Yet both were quite entertaining.
