When Christina from a gentle mother asked if I’d be willing to take over setting up the Tuesday Library Haul link up, I was beyond excited. From attending Story Hour at the library as a child to working as a library aide during high school and college, I love all things biblioteca.
Although the home is different, the gist is the same: comment or link up with the best books (or other materials!) from your library haul this week. The only slight adjustment is that we’ll be using the comments to share links instead of a fancy linkup service. The comment way isn’t as pretty, but it will still work just fine.
Treasures From Our Checkout Pile
How hard is it to keep Cee in books?!?! Since she’s been flaring this month she is playing less and reading more. We brought home a few books from The Littles series, and she enjoyed them. We read one out loud as a family, and all the kids were enthralled by the idea of little people (with tails!) living amongst regular people. A+ classic literature? Nope. But they are wholesome with an emphasis on family.
I put a few more on hold at the library for next week.
How can I describe A Second is a Hiccup: A Child’s Book of Time?
Handful of words on a page? Check
An abstract concept made easier for kids to understand? Check
Even my older girls seemed to appreciate the different ways to think about time. A week is really “seven wake-ups, seven sleeps.”
Hey? Those qualities above? Thankful can check them all off as well!
Everyone has something for which to be thankful in this simple book by Eileen Spinelli.
This is the current book for the Well Read Mom group I joined. It’s thick, so I was concerned about being able to steal enough time to read it before 1. It’s due back at the library and 2. Our group meets.
I’m only a little into it, but it is worth recommending so far.
If you have read this book, do not tell me how it ends. It will crush my hopes and dreams if I find out the characters I love die or do dumb stuff before it comes up organically.
Do you have any library treasures to share? I’m always working on putting a batch on hold for next week! ?
