Books for tactility

Of course, the point of books is exploration, and it was very exciting to see Harriet realizing that this morning. I've been helping her "read" her touch and feel books for a while now, but this morning she reached out and did it herself. I read to her all the time, and she seems to listen, and she looks at the pictures, but this was the first active response she's ever shown to a book, and it made me very happy. Books are for touching indeed, and soon they'll be for eating, and one day you'll be reading and have the world in your hands.
