I was reading the much-loved Caps for Sale with Alrik today (during our four-hour failed nap attempt, sigh) and I was reminded of this video of Mikko enthusiastically reading along with the same book:
You need to watch only a few seconds of the video to get the gist. By the way, the video's date is wrong; it was 2010, when Mikko was 2.5, not 2009. I was wondering, because I thought Mikko wasn't all that verbal, but in the video he seems a lot ahead of where Alrik is right now at 1.5. Glad to know Alrik's got a year still to catch up to that! He'll be obnoxiously yet adorably screaming "Caps for sale" at any minute now.
Some weekend reading for you!
