You're Never Too Young

I was thrilled when I found out I was going to have a granddaughter. The first thing I wanted to do for her, was share my love of books. So, from the time Alice was born we began to read simple board books. As weeks went by I could see she was focusing on the bright colors and shapes.  Here at just 10 weeks she is already showing an interest.

The library has a great selections of board books that any baby would would love. One of my favorite is I Kissed the Baby by Mary Murphy.

THE LIBRARY CHALLENGE

THE LIBRARY CHALLENGE One of my personal treats in the summer is participating in the Adult Summer Reading Program. I‘m not competing with anyone but myself, and I don’t set my goal too high to reach. While I do not read as much my friends and co-workers, I do enjoy reading. I have my favorite authors and do not step too far from regular fiction, romance and mystery. So in the summer, I challenge myself to read something outside of my norm. One year I read a western. I enjoyed it. Last year I tried a fiction that took place in another continent. I enjoyed that one too. This year I am going to stretch myself with a fantasy. I don’t plan to switch all my reading to a different genre, just sprinkle a little in with my regular stuff. You know, like salt and pepper, just to add a little flavor in my summer.
