The other day Joelle had all of her “Little Miss” books laid out and wondered “how many do I have?”. So, she proceeded to count them – 10. Then her gaze turned to the bookshelf full of books – “how many of those do I have?”. Good question – turns out she has 242 books in her room.

For those of you who have read Freakonomics, you might recall that one of the 6 things that correlate with high test scores is “The child has many books in the home”. I guess we take that book seriously 🙂
