Books Galore

This morning we visited and became members of the Cordova Public Library, after over 5 years of living here. Pathetic, isn't it? I'm not sure why we didn't do it sooner as much as we all love books. It's not like we haven't been in it a million times before for Story Time. Oh well, better late than never right? Anyway, Isabella was ecstatic to get her own membership card, just like Little Bill did on his show.

In addition, I enrolled both kids in the library summer reading program that runs through the end of July. Isabella LOVES books so this is right up her alley. Sam not so much, but we're working on it. Anyway, we're supposed to document all the books we read together and as they accumulate the kids get prizes.

Once I found a book to entertain Sam with and gave the OK for Isabella to go on her book search she went nuts! She brought so many books back to our table I had to actually reel her in a bit. When it was all said and done this is the stack of books we came home with:

Yes ladies and gentlemen, we came home with a total of 14 books, and that was after I was able to weed quite a few of them out. As you can see she picked a couple Dr. Seuss books and Clifford books by Norman Bridwell were a big seller, as well as a collection of books by Barbro Lindgren and Eva Eriksson about a boy named Sam. How appropriate!

We're supposed to begin our "readathon" after today's nap time, and I can't wait. So here's to fun books, good company and spending some time in the cool indoors.
