Guess what? Last week, I picked up the girls from school. It was a Friday afternoon and sunny outside. They had spent all week in the classroom. We walked through the door of our house and I mentioned that I had stopped at the library and the books we had ordered had come in. (Now, our librarians know me so well that they sometimes order books just because they know my girls will enjoy them.) That day the ones we had ordered on interlibrary loan came in and the librarian brought me a couple fairy books and a couple Fancy Nancy books too. So when I brought these books out, you can imagine my pleasure, when all three girls grabbed the books they were interested in and proceeded to plop down on the couch or living room chair and READ. They read for at least an hour if not longer.
It was a beautiful sight to this book-lovin' mama. Just beautiful.
