Bring your library card to public libraries

My 5 year old am I had books due at the public library, so we stopped at the library after school one day. We had all our books to return and walked into the library.

My son is looking at books while I’m scrambling looking for our library cards. Where are the cards? Hmmm…

Absolute panic! Then apologies to my son as I realize I put the cards in my purse, which I left at home.

Instead of getting angry, my son decides to make the best of this library trip and looks for books for me to read to him right in the library. We might not need to borrow the books if we read it right now!

We read books for a good hour or so, then decided we should go and accomplish a few other errands for the day.

I have AJ be moved the library cards to somewhere I won’t forget next time, ready file any last minute trip to the library. Maybe that next trip will be today!?

First kindergarten resource day to the library

Yesterday was my kindergarten son’s first resource day that his class visited the school library. I really don’t know how often they will be visiting the library since they rotate resource days for other activities as well, like the computer lab, physical education outside, etc.

For his first book he borrowed from the school library, he gets a Pokemon easy reader. It’s still a book higher than his reading level, but a topic he absolutely loves.

You mean the television show he’s been watching on Netflix also has books?! No way! Little does he realize, his older half-brother was a Pokemon fanatic when he was younger. Ten years apart and they speak the same Pokemon language, it’s crazy!

Anyway, my son isn’t new to going to a library or borrowing books. We often go to the public library and I helped him get his own library card. He’s so proud if it!

Which reminds me, his books for the public library are due on Tuesday. We need to return them all!

My son loves being read to and is learning to read himself. He’s learning that books take him to different places just like the cartoons he loves. He’s also learning the difference between fiction and non-fiction, which he enjoys as well, especially if it’s about dinosaurs.

I think he really is becoming a bookworm…
