I miss it in many ways, even though I often wonder what on earth my mum was dressing me in! “It was nice at the time”, she tells me.

She really looks at them and interacts with them by touching them and trying to hold them. Sometimes she even tries to turn the pages by herself!
Autumn seems to have three favourite books currently:
