I am a librophile. I love books. And because of this love, I've been reluctant to let Peanut "play" with the board books if we aren't reading together. Why? Because his form of "play" is to chew on the book. It does make me sad to see a spit-soaked book with the corners coming apart.
But because I don't want to set a precedence, I'm letting Peanut play with the board books. Yes, I'm limiting it to only 1 or 2, so that only those 1 or 2 are chewed to pieces at a time.
