Earlier this year I noticed something so key.
How I never noticed it with my oldest is beyond me....
My youngest son who can't read yet was picking out his bedtime books.
He was standing in front of his bookcase and pulling each one out to look at the front.
After looking at the cover, he would push it back in, lay it on the floor,
or choose it to be read.
I then realized that for "pre-readers" setting up their books
like a library wasn't working.
They can't read the title on the spine.
They want to see the cover to know what it's about.
So I went to Target and found these cute and sturdy fabric baskets.
Now he sits in front of them and flips through them choosing what he wants to read.
The basket on the left holds our books.
The one on the right holds the library books.
For the most part, it stays like this.
Confession: I am a library junkie. We go there at least once a week.
I have a huge basket that I lug in with us and fill it to the top.
Go support your local library!!!
I try to rotate our own books out every week or two,
especially around the season or upcoming holiday.
Although Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree
stays out all year long.
Fabulous book given to my boys by my very best friend.
If you haven't read it to your kids - Go get it!!!
Give this a try with your kids -
I'm sure both of you will love it!!
