The Three Bs of Reading According to Two Who Know

May 11, 2017

It’s never too early to introduce children to books. The benefits are abundant. Reading together is a bonding experience and aids in developing language, communication, speech, and logical thinking skills. Putting a book into a child’s hand at an early age helps instill the love of reading.

READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY

March 2, 2017

One book, two books.

Old books, new books.

 

Some are short and funny, too.

Some are long like a size twelve shoe.

 

Magic happens in a book.

Turn the page and take a look.

Books can fly you to the moon

Just by riding on a spoon.

 

Happy, sad, or full of flair

Books can take you anywhere.

So …

Grab a book and grab a friend.

Read a book until the end.

 

It’s Read Across America Day!

Do you know what Dr. Seuss would say?

 

“The more that you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Give Your House Soul

October 27, 2016

A quote credited to Plato says, “A house that has a library in it has a soul.” Give your house a soul and build a home library.

When children open a book, they open a door to new places, new ideas, and new adventures.

Be a role model and let your children see you reading. Share lap time and read to them.

With a home library, you can create an atmosphere of learning and cultivate the love of books. If buying books too expensive, visit your neighborhood library. Make a special go-to place in your home for those library books, and keep it overflowing with a variety of genres.

In the Neighborhood

February 19, 2015

It’s a beautiful Little Free Library in the neighborhood! While on a walk, I discovered this library in my neighborhood park. Families donated time and money to install the Little Free Library for everyone in the neighborhood to use. The day I stopped by, it was packed full of great books for children and adults.

Little Free Libraries

October 9, 2014

Have you noticed? Little Free Libraries are popping up everywhere. One may be just around the corner from you. Keep your eyes open for these adorable little libraries. It’s an ingenious concept. “Take a book, return a book.” Books are suddenly accessible on your way home from school, on your way to work, on a pleasant walk after dinner. Reading is important so why not add a Little Free Library to your front yard and share the wealth of reading!

Look what I found while riding around my neighborhood!
