Library, Library, LIBRARY!!

Yesterday, I asked Eli what he wanted to do and he responded, “Go to the Library!”

We’ve been to the library some but not weekly or anything so I was a bit surprised by this request. When I picked him up from school he asked, “Are we going to the library now?”

So we did and we picked up about 12 books for him to read. He made me promise that we would read six of them when we got home before nap. We did and then he had a nap. When he woke up we had to take breaks between watching Little Einsteins to read library books. At bedtime Stephen had to read “The Stinky Cheese Man.”

It’s 7:40 and I’ve already read eight books this morning. Stephen had to take a break from getting ready for work to read a couple. I’m not sure what we are going to do today to top the library books. Maybe I can distract him by taking him to the grocery store to get a cookie.

  1. This sounds great.

    Since we are near the library, and also because I have fond memories of the library as a child (excellent baby-sitters for a school-aged child that likes to read), we’ve made the library a normal part of our routine. There’s also a “baby” room where all the board books are, and there are also some toys and coloring books for toddlers. He totally loves it. We always pick up two books for him. I look forward to the day when he says he wants to go to the library.

  2. That’s so great that he likes to go to the library! I remember growing up and it was a treat to be able to go to the library. You guys have done a wonderful job instilling a joy of reading in him. I have a feeling he’ll be just as addicted to books as you guys are. 🙂
