I'll have to add a few of those to our collection. I read to Aiden every night, he isn't very interested yet but he will be.

Oh yes, he definitely will be. Just getting into the habit will be good in the long run. Seamus didn't enjoy it until he was six or seven months old, and even then we could only get through short picture books. Now long books with lots of paragraphs and he loves it.

Frog Went A courtin' has been a favorite since day one. I can remember reading this to Mr. S before he could roll over.
