Friday, May 23
We all slept until after nine today! There was still a lot of coughing last night, but the little bit of extra sleep this morning really helped things.
I have been sorting through our children's books and have been pulling out some favorites that were forgotten (Pretzel, The Big Road Race, and The Jolly Postman to name a few) and putting books into categories. One of our categories are New York Review Children's Books. We only own a few, but they are such good books and I love their pretty red spines and how nicely made they are. I have always wanted to read more of them to our little ones and as I was admiring them, a little seed of an idea began to grow. How about a summer reading club with titles chosen from their 3-7 year-old book list? We will read a new title from the book list each week (there are 14 weeks from Memorial Day until Labor Day) and make a production out of this little summer reading club of ours by choosing the perfect time and place to delve into our book complete with special snacks to share during our reading time. Our first book is The Mousewife and we can't wait until next week!
I hope that you have a lovely holiday weekend!
