I managed to browse through a HUGE used bookstore all by myself this week. Brent stayed in the car while the girls were sleeping so I had a whole hour to myself. I found a bunch of books that were pretty cheap and even a big hit with Sammi and Elli. We also “discovered” one Elli got for Christmas that we hadn’t read yet. It’s been a great week for reading at our house.
Ladybug Girl is the story of how Lulu entertains herself one morning when everyone at her house is busy. She is dressed up as a ladybug, which immediately drew Elli to the book. Their room right now has ladybugs decorating the walls and curtain and they even have ladybug wings they like to wear on occasion. They could really relate to Lulu who wanders her house and yard finding adventures to entertain herself until her mom is done with her “work.” The first time we read this book, Elli was on my lap and her little legs just kicked and kicked in joy when Lulu jumped off a log and said, “Ta-da!”
I thought Clifford’s Happy Easter would be a good one with Easter approaching. It has tons of eggs on the cover and we’ve been doing Easter egg hunts for two years straight. When I brought out the stack of brand new books this was the first one she wanted to read. We were driving in the car so she just looked at it by herself but she was back there laughing at the silly situations and telling us her version of the story as she showed us the pictures. She really got to exercise her creative imagination muscle with this book. It will be fun to read this book again and again in preparation for Easter.
