A few weeks ago, she was paging through the books and saw the story about Tigger that makes up Chapter 9. She wanted me to read her that story immediately.
"No," I told her. "This is a book with chapters and we have to read it in order."
Eventually, she agreed to this, and we read one chapter a night until we finally got to Chapter 9, "Tigger Dreams of Africa". Katie was happy to hear it.
And the next night I read her Chapter 10 and the book was over.
The next night she asked for Chapter 9, so I read it to her, because now we had read all the chapters and knew all the things that had come before.
And tonight, Julie insisted that I put her to bed instead of daisy_knotwise, so now Gretchen is reading a chapter of the book to Katie.
I was not surprised when I heard the opening lines of Chapter 9 coming through the wall into the room where I was putting Julie to bed...
