The Benefits of the Library
I was raised a reader and when my oldest was young we would go to the library. I remember on one trip she started randomly pulling books from the shelf just like she always did. I would look at the books she selected and for the most part they were geared towards her. I will never forget the day she randomly chose "The Napping House" by Audrey Wood. I glanced through the book and knew this would be a great book to read together. We enjoyed the book so much we bought our own copy, two children later we were still enjoying this random book pulled from the library shelf years ago. When she was in high school she took a class on child development and came home announcing she needed to bring a book that she would read to a child. The first thing she said was "Mom do we still have "The Napping House?" Yes, we did however it had sat in a box from a move and became unusable. It doesn't matter we still love this story with it's consistancy and witt. Go to the library and let your child/children pick out some books randomly you just find your "Napping House."
