childrens book day

Tuesday, April 09, 2019

In celebration of Children"s book day I'd love to celebrate my love of reading. My favorite books when I was in grade school was Little House on the Prairie (I still have some of the copies ) and Pippie Longstocking. I remember my Dad taking me to a couple of the movies when I was little as well. Even today I'd rather read the book before seeing the movie. It gives me great pleasure that a couple of my grandchildren share in my love of reading. It was a mixture of happiness and sadness the day that I stopped reading to them and they started reading to them. But even today my 5 year old grandson will bring me a stack of books and say "will you read these to me ?" He expects a bedtime story most nights. I remember getting in trouble when my mom would come to my room when I was supposed to be sleeping and she would find me under the covers with a flashlight and book reading. She'd say "you're going to ruin your eyes!" Even today the 1st thing I do when I get up after my shower while I'm sipping my coffee and no one else is awake I crack open a book. Even though I occasionally read a book with my kindle reader there is nothing like reading from a real book. Yes I can't even remember what grade my love of reading started but I imagine it was the same for me as it was for my grandkids (skipped a generation ) kindergarden.

    I love to read! I've always had my "nose in a book" according to my Grandmothers. My Dad would take us kids to the library on Saturdays. I loved Little House, Nancy Drew, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle. So many to list. :)

    I loved the 2 books you mentioned as well. I still have my copy of Little House My mom wold tell me the same thing about ruining my eyes. I do wear glasses but I don't think it's from that as both my parents had them too. I enjoy reading,,,my idea of a fun vacation is reading 3-4 books in the week.

    I loved the Little House books and read the first one to my second graders for many years! There's nothing like reading bedtime stories to little ones!

    So many great books out there geared for children. They really need to be encouraged to read and expand their world so they can grow up to challenge life
