Smiley's Favorite Catalog

In December we receive even more catalogs in the mail than usual.

For about two months Smiley has been old enough to enjoy looking at them with mommy. The household item catalogs are useful for his vocabulary practice. The clothing catalogs are useful for practicing color names. But his favorite catalog is the Heifer gift catalog with all of its photographs of animals.

Board books tend to have illustrations of animals, not actual photos. They almost never have llamas or water buffaloes. They are smaller, too: he likes turning the bigger pages.

We have not used that gift catalog in a couple years. But the charity does good work and is well ranked, so I expect we will use it again sooner or later.
