Summer Reading Fun


When I was a young girl the long anticipated break for summer was a time to immerse myself in books. In summer I would spend days at the library . I would sit in the children's section the entire day and read cover to cover. I loved to read! I could escape in the pages to places I would never go. It was like having a holiday without leaving the library.I found friends on every page I turned
and adventures that most certainly always turned out fun . All that and I could be home by 6 pm; never alone but with a armload of adventures to keep me company! I do not get to the library much anymore but my love of a good book has not ended . These days my adventures are with my girls as I share with them the love of a good story. It is such a memorable time to sit and snuggle and read together ! Some great books to read with little girls are Butterfly Kisses, by Vicki Churchill, Stella by Marie Louse Gay, Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots ? by Carmela Lavigna Coyle, and our 2 year olds very favorite Russel the Sheep by Rob Scotton . If you are looking for a gift this summer for a book lover be sure to have a look at http://www.etsy.com/shop/sixbabygirls?section_id=6971429 for some beautiful bookmarks for that special person that loves a good read !

  3. what a wonderful post - I've recently 're-discovered' my local library, and although my kids are now teenagers, I'm still love children's fiction - something about stories full of wild imagination... ☺
