Zachary and I are attending a story time at our local library. The class runs for 6 weeks and is geared towards children 6 - 23 months. It's a wonderful time for us as we sit around a circle of books, sing songs led by the teacher, listen to a story, and then they bring out the toys! Zachary plays the role of observer in public until he's familiar enough to take it all in experientially as well. It took 3 weeks, but he finally found his voice today AND 2 beach balls!!
