CJ has so many toys, but the first thing he grabs in his play area are his books. This happens every single day. We go to his play area, and he grabs his books. He sits on the mattress in his play area (it's a mattress that was in his playard. It's just small enough to fit in his play area, and it satisfies his love of uneven surfaces). He surrounds himself with the books, and he flips through each and every one.
After he's done looking through each book, he brings all of them to me so I can read them. He lines them up in front of me, and then chooses a book for me to read to him. The books are extremely interactive so we have a lot of fun with our story time. There is one book that he likes called "At the Zoo." At the end of the story, I ask him to point out his favorite animal, and he ALWAYS points to the monkey.
Fun fact: When I was pregnant, I had a feeling he would like monkeys. The fact that he actually likes monkeys is pretty awesome.
