Kayla still takes a nap every day, well… she rests in her bed every day. If she takes a nap, that is good, if not, we both still got some quiet time where I can unwind or work with the other girls. Before I put her down for a nap, I read to her. She has chosen Big Susan by Elizabeth Orton Jones this week. I have to admit, I was secretly excited when she did.
All my girls love this book, as well as every book we have read by Elizabeth Orton Jones! Big Susan is about a family of dolls who live in a dollhouse. They belong to a little girl they lovingly call “Big Susan”. Big Susan always takes care of them, speaks for them, and moves for them. One day, she doesn’t, and many weeks pass with Big Susan still not coming to check on them.
One night out of the year, they don’t have to depend on Susan. They can move about and talk on their own. When that night comes, they come up with a plan! You’ll have to read the book to find out more. It is such a sweet book, and always encourages my girls to play with their dolls if they have been slightly neglected.
