A Little Weekend Reading

July 13, 2013 // Parenting

We definitely promote in our household is reading books. I’ll usually drop what I’m doing if someone asks me to read them a book, within reason of course, because I enjoy nothing more than a true love of reading. Whether there is silent ‘reading’ going on, flipping through the pages of books just to look at pictures or reading a book all together. Overall there is a lot of reading in our home! Our bookcases are usually busting at the seams because they are filled up with so many great reads.

One thing I don’t mind spending a bit of money on is new books for either myself or the kids. I totally support authors and love the feeling of a fresh book in my hands. I’d rather buy books for my kids over cheap toys or more knick knacks that end up in the abyss of my kids toy mess. I’d rather they get books as presents than plastic toys that break or get easily forgotten about. Recently I went to a friends fun Usbourne book party and the person representing the book company was actually a blog reader of mine. Really, Vancouver is such a small world (Hi, Heather!).

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the Vancouver Public Library and had a great time picking out books. We decided to try and find books that went with our 2 chosen themes; going to kindergarten and dinosaurs. We found many fun books about heading to kindergarten and are taking our time flipping through the pages and reading the stories. I love how books can help you adapt to life changes like starting school.

Too cool for kindergarten 😉 Ben with his stash of new library books and his recently chosen robot lunch kit

Do you love reading books as much as us? Tell me your favourite kids book!
