Something I’ve been trying to do with Missy Moo is take her to places for fun and new experiences. Even when she was just a few months old we were going weekly to story time at one of our local libraries.
It’s not always easy to go out with her, especially now that she’s getting more mobile, vocal and independent… we went to Reel Babies recently and it was interesting to say the least. Thank goodness my mother was there with us!
Next weekend, there’s a fun family activity coming up that we’re definitely going to attend. It’s called CBC Reads with One Book, One Child.
What’s fun is that some of our local CBC personalities will be there to read their favourite children’s books. So if you want to hear Here & Now’s Jonathan Crowe, Debbie Cooper and Ryan Snoddon share their book, it sounds like the place to be. I wonder, will Ryan choose a book about weather?
Our little family will be going and so should you. Maybe we’ll see you there!
If you do go, you’re encouraged to bring along new and gently used books as a donation to Literacy NL and the Community Food Sharing Association. All books donated that day will be given to local food banks and distributed to families and children.
It sounds like a fun event for an important cause. I’m sure we can find some books to donate. And books for all ages is encouraged.
I was chatting with my mom just the other day about my reading habits. When I was young, I loved to read and it was something my parents always encouraged. Both my brother and I were avid readers (although I think he had more of a passion for it than I did). I remember going through lots of books and also enjoying library visits where I could find something new or fun.
Do you remember the Baby-Sitter Club books? I had a few… oh yeah. I loved those books. My eldest niece currently has them, but I suspect her reading level is beyond BSC books, but they are a nice easy and quick read.
Into adulthood, I’ve noticed that I don’t read as often as I like. I think part of it is the busy lifestyle we have, but part of it is due to my ADHD. It takes me long enough to get ready for bed at night that by the time I am, it’s really too late to lie back and get through a chapter or two in the latest read. One might say I’m really good at dilly dallying. But with so many books in our house, I’d like to really work on reading more. It’s something I hope Missy Moo will also enjoy since Matt is a super-fast speed reader who devours books.
I’ve been reading to little miss and am starting to notice that she’s liking some books more than others. One book that she absolutely loves is Good Night Moon. I’m not sure why, but maybe it’s the fun contrasting colours, or something about the words. All I know is that she gets excited, bounces up and down and grabs at the book whenever we start to read it. Thank you Auntie Christina, Uncle Joseph and Theo for that book. She loves it!
I wonder if someone will read Good Night Moon on Saturday? We’ll have to wait and see.
