My other bookish boy

At 14 months, Eli is coming around to reading later than other members of the family, but lately he’s been asking us to read to him, too. He’ll pick up a book, crawl over with the book clutched in one hand, clamber headfirst into a lap, and hand over the book. At first, I thought it was a funny coincidence that he always handed over the book upside down, but no matter how many times I turn the book right side up, he always turns it back upside down. So now I read to him that way. This must suit his precocious brain development in some way I don’t understand. Or so I like to think.
