Have a mini-vacation – read a book to your children

by Under the Pines on February 1, 2010 · 0 comments

I found that reading outloud was one way to travel without leaving home.  We could go to Richard Scarry’s Busytown or to the outskirts of Saskatoon in Owls in the Family and have a    mini-holiday together without having to pack or spend any money.  Instead what I spent was time.   Time, that most precious commodity that you can’t buy but you can give.  You and your children will come away refreshed having met new people who enrich your life.  The library is filled with great stories and librarians are there to help you find books that you and your children might like.      A win-win situation.

You can download free ReadAloud Newsletters from my website filled with suggestions for books to read to children from 1 – 14 years old that you might find interesting.  The Feb. 2009 issue is filled with books about Birds as February is Bird Watching month.

I love libraries.  I love books, and I loved reading to my children.  Jan 27th was family literacy day.  I just want to continue to encourage you to read to your children. What better thing to do on a rainy February afternoon?
