Silly Poetry BooksTuesday, July 21, 2015
I have had a goal for years in doing my best to allow my kids to love reading and books. Practically speaking that means I do my best to have book time every day with my kids and once a week we make a trip to the local library. While at the library I pretty much have always allowed my kids to pick out the books they most wanted to read.
I remember walking into the library as a young child and being in awe at the choices, and the freedom to pick. Quickly I found a section in the kids wing that had books I loved to look at, and I didn't veer far from it. And now, I see my kids doing the same thing.
This is a great thing. However, in the freedom given, they have missed out on some great genres and authors. For the summer, I have decided to be a little proactive in choosing library books. while they are still allowed to pick a fun book each week, they also have to pick a non-fiction books on a topic they pick and a poetry book.
In the process we have discovered some hysterical poems!
