Basil is 11 years old. He is 11 years old, 5'7" tall, and weighs 200 lbs. But he is still a little boy. And he loves being read to.
I wish I still had all the books I bought him and Anselm when they were very little boys but I don't. (Their mother donated them to a hospital. My plan was to save them and give them to grand children.) Some of my favorites were Harry the Dirty Dog, Are You My Mother, and Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel.
Basil was sent home from summer camp today because of an injury. I think I need to go to a library, check out some books, and read to him. Or, maybe, have him read to me.
