Meet my one and only godson, four-year-old Allen:
I always give him books for birthdays and Christmases because he loves them. He already has The Enormous Turnip memorized. When he entered my room, he saw my bookshelf and exclaimed, “Wow, so many books!” So I asked him if he wanted me to take his picture with the books. He said yes and asked, “Do you have any children’s books in there?” Unfortunately, I said no. But I did find some of my old children’s books in another shelf and gave him a couple of those.
Here he is reading The Three Little Pigs, surrounded by his mom and other ninangs (godmothers):
He’s actually a very animated reader. I hope he keeps his love for reading as he grows older. He can expect to get more books from his Ninang Chachic in the future.
