My 22mo daughter is a very loving and empathetic child. I wouldn't want it any other way! However, whenever we read a book where a character cries or is sad, she gets obsessed with that page & that character. She will hug & kiss the book/character, and keep turning back to the page. She gets angry if we try to move forward with the book/story. She often then misses the happy ending, which is usually the point of the story.
Does this seem pretty normal, or do we need to talk to our pediatrician?
