Hi there! Thanks for all the wonderful book suggestions you shared yesterday! I now have a great list to keep me busy and content for a long while to come.
Was there anything better, as a child, than climbing up on your mother's lap so that she could read you a story?
What were your favorite books when you were a child? Among others, I loved the Little House series, Eloise and Winnie the Pooh. I've shared my love of those books (and many more) with my children. In fact, my mother used to read those stories to me when I was little.
Kelly created this layout to celebrate her favorite Golden Books. You remember those - the little, colorful stories with the golden spine? Note how Kelly journals about how they made her feel as a child and how she enjoys sharing that warmth with her own children.
Francine created this layout about the books her son, Kieran like to have read to him over and over again. She placed her journaling behind the button on the left. Don't you love all that text-themed paper for a page about books.
Amy created a questionnaire to give her children. Having her son fill in his own answers really adds a personal touch. Both he and she will enjoy seeing his handwriting for years to come.
Amy was kind enough to share 2 files with us. The first one is a copy of her survey -Download Reading Survey.
The second is a copy of the darling title she made for her page -Download Title.
Thanks so much Amy!
My Dad used to quote this poem to me when I was small, and I still love it.
You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be -
I have a mother who read to me.

If you have a minute, leave a comment letting me know what favorite stories you have read to your children, or that your mother or father read to you.
See you tomorrow,
