Never underestimate the power of your local library.
What could possibly be a better place to encourage your children's love of reading than the library? Where else can your little sweethearts pick as many books as their hearts desire to take home??? (And bonus for you, Mom, for being eco-friendly - book sharing is so green!)
Libraries are not only rich with literature, but they exist to build a solid foundation for reading. They abound with reading programs and story hours, especially during the summer. Take advantage of it!!!
I took my little ones to the library yesterday, and they simply loved picking book after book to throw in the basket for check-out. When we returned home, the first thing they did was sit down amidst a sea of books and READ, READ, READ.
I don't know if I love to see anything more than my children hungrily lapping up literature.
Visit your local library often to support your children's literary growth. You'll be glad you did, trust me!!
P/S...I just had to share an awesome site I discovered! Here's the link: There's a Book. It is a wonderful site filled with children's literature, recommendations, and giveaways. Plus, it is a gorgeous site! Enjoy!
