They each bring a pile of library books to my bed and we enjoy reading together. As their heads rest on my shoulders, I pause to muse that this will not last forever.
There is usually a vast difference in the subject matter of the books.
Insects, bugs, anything animalia. ("Inger's choice)
Books with beautiful pictures whether true or fiction. ("Marie's" choice)
My little "Inger" is my animal lover. As we stopped to read a book about vesperids (snakes with poison and pits) we found out they eat frogs. "Inger" stopped me and informed me that is good because frogs eat butterflies. And we DON'T want butterflies eaten. Little did she know she was reporting on the life cycle of the insect world.
"Marie" endures and waits eagerly for her next pick.
