The journaling reads: The day your books arrived, you had as much fun reading your books as you had playing in the box! To this day, the book you enjoy most is the "Barnyard Dance," especially when we dance along with the animals. It's fun to hear you laugh uncontrollably when we "strut with the duck, prance with the horse, skitter with the mice, and scramble with the chicks." By the end of the book we're panting so hard, you would think we ran the marathon.... Your laughter always brightens my day.
