Michigan parents Dan and Alicia Stevers have uploaded a YouTube video of their 10-month-old son crying when they turn to the last page of various children’s books — such as Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown and I Am a Bunny by Ole Risom. “Emmett has a mini-meltdown every time we finish a book,” the baby’s father, a video producer, wrote on Twitter. “This kid really loves his books.” The youngster’s blue t-shirt that reads “The Snuggle Is Real” is just the icing on the cake.

The video racked up nearly 80,000 views by Tuesday evening, prompting Dan Stevers to tweet, “This kid may have just started his own college fund.”
