I {Heart} Library Day

  I love, love, LOVE to read and want my kids to be good readers too.  We promote this by limiting TV time to an hour a day, and requiring quiet reading (or looking at pictures if you can’t read yet) every day during nap time. 

  I could go on to list 1,001 reason that I love Library Day, but I am pretty sure the photo below says more than I could ever articulate:

Do you hear that?

SILENCE, except for the occasional turned page.

Where is Paxton you ask?  Oh making mischief I am sure.  Let me go find him…..

“Paxton!  What are you doing on the train table?!  And why must you destroy the kids Nativity set everyday?”

  Guess its time I put down the camera and go read Paxton some books………

I {heart} reading!  🙂

  1. Oh what a wonderful plan – those big pillows make it perfect for them to WANT to lay there and read! I always limited my kid’s tv time too – our daughter, Deb, always had a book in her hand. She taught herself to read in kindergarten and when she entered the first grade, she was reading on a 5th grade level!!! Always a good student too. Reading is sooo important for everything else. GREAT thinking Mom! I so enjoy seeing these kinds of pictures.

  2. I want that nativity scene…I could leave it up all year long!

    Book reading is one of my favorite things to do, who are your favorite christian writers?

    • Beverly Lewis, Francine Rivers, Terri Blackstock, Wanda Burnstetter, Karen Kingsbury, Tracie PEterson, Kim Vogel Sawyer, Lori Copeland…the list goes on and on! When I was on bed rest with Paxton for 6 and a half months, I was reading 28 books a month. I got very familiar with our library’s Christian paperback section! LOL 🙂

      • Hmmm sounds like some of my favorites! KK is a amazing writer as well as Blackstock. Sawyer was great as well, as well as Copeland. I’m not sure about the others. I need to visit the library more often. I have books to return today so maybe I will..

        The one thing I find frustrating about the paperback section is how the books seem to be out of order and its hard to find whole series

  3. What a beautiful scene that is of the kiddos laying there relaxing by your beautiful tree and reading…makes me want to go grab a book and my comforter and get with it !

I adore hearing from you, comment away! :)
