Ready, Set, Read

Today was the first day to sign up for summer reading at our local library, so Emily and I hopped on over. Actually we drove since the library is all the way on the other side of town, but we arrived just the same. We filled out our registration forms, and we filled out our picture consent forms, and we received our library goodie bag replete with a pencil,  a book mark, the summer agenda.

Then we headed to the children's section to pick out some books. While there I also took a picture of the display I created to match the summer theme of "Dig Into A Good Book". Dig could apply to many things such as treasure, dinosaurs, or bulldozers and construction, but I chose dogs since Emily has so many and wouldn't miss a few.






As you can probably tell, I love summer reading and all it involves. I would also be interested to see  pictures of what your kiddos are reading this summer. Pictures of their stacks of books, pictures of them reading in their favorite spot, pictures of them at summer reading events. It doesn't matter, just send them all to astewart27@neo.rr.com.

Signing off for now with wishes for a bright and beautiful day!

  2. Fabulous idea Aileen. It will be winter reading for us down in the southern hemisphere, but we will try to remember to take a photo on our next library visit. Thanks for linking in to the kid lit blog hop and visiting me earlier over at my little blog. Cheers Julie Grasso

  3. Here from the Kid Lit Blog Hop. What a fab display. We have a similar summer reading challenge in the UK, this year's theme is Creepy House! The schools finish for summer later here so it's too early to sign up but I'm as excited as you are to take my girls to our local library. Libraries rock :-)
