    From Tots To Teens

    Every year our local library has an 8 week summer reading program from tots to eighteen. At the end of the program, there's an award ceremony to recognize the participants and reward their hours of free-time reading. I sign my kids up every year. Parental reading counts for the...

    "I felt as if I had been gone a long time

    as I stood there looking down from the high rock. I was happy to be home. Everything I saw - the otter playing in the kelp, the rings of foam around the rocks guarding the harbor, the gulls flying, the tides moving past the sand pit - filled me with happiness." -Island of the...

    I love reading children's books & teaching

    toddlers how to read. I love making silly voices & faces and seeing the mesmerized look on their face. Not to mention the look they get when they can read it back to you, it's priceless.

    Reading Into a Melancholy Mood

    I have no living children of my own although that is probably one of the biggest challenges in my life. So why do I have literally bookshelf after bookshelf of children’s books in my nursery? I always planned to marry a man that would want me to have his children. We would...

    Oh so much! I go through phases,

    but I feel like I just got punched in the gut! Have you ever had that feeling that you're supposed to do something, supposed to pursue something, but aren't sure how, not sure you have what it takes? Many people feel this regarding music, or art, or business... I feel it with...

    A Wonderful Way To End The Day.

    For over a decade now, I have been reading a bedtime story, most nights, to which ever child of mine was willing to listen. I have always felt a sense of accomplishment, to be able to sit and re tell a story, share in some magic, have some special quiet time, and then a kiss...

    I mostly read them to our dog

    or cat but I love how they just sit there and listen. My nieces and nephews don't behave when I try to read to them. The worst the cat does is get in my lap and try to look at the pictures.

    The Chronicles Of Narnia

    I cannot put down that book! I am on the third story now. The author is such a good story teller. I love how comforting children's books are. They are simple and aren't as dramatic as novels.

    I am re-reading Little Women.

    Its not really a "Children's Book" maybe, a young adult book possibly. I am staying with a family from church and I forgot to bring my books so I was given this to read and I am enjoying it again.

    who enjoys reading children's books. I don't have any of my own, but it's still fun to re-read old favorites or read popular new ones.

    I Collect Childrens Books

    I did go through a phase when I didn't read childrens books, but by the time I was 18 I was a fairly avid reader once again. I knew i wasn't the only one when my best friend told me I couldn't borrow her complete works of AA Milne because she was reading it to herself before bed...

    I have trouble concentrating

    but even if I didn't some of the books aimed at adults are so big/fat I'm put off by them. Also many books for adults have death/violence or something that looks really upsetting in them just reading the blurb about the book. It's likely that that won't take up a small amount of...

    I find Children's books really fascinating.

    Not only are they entertaining, but they are also quick to read and hold much more valuable information than a lot of adult books out there! I mostly enjoy Dr. Seuss books, his books will forever have a place in my heart <3
