Library Books

Here is our library book selection from the last week... actually we've had these for about 2 weeks, but just now posting... From top left to bottom right, we have All About Me: A Baby's Guide to Babies, Tumble Bumble by Felicia Bond, Tails Are Not for Pulling by Elizabeth Verdick, and This Little Chick by John Lawrence. My son loved all of these books! I figured he would like the All About Me book since it has pictures of real babies. He loves looking at real pictures! He also liked the cute pictures and rhyming story in Tumble Bumble. The pictures were also a hit in the other two books. This Little Chick was so cute because the chick went around to the other animals on the farm and started "speaking" like them (i.e., "moo-ing" like the cows). So, my son loved to make all the animal noises! I LOVE all the "Manners" books! My son has been a little rough on our very tolerant animals lately, so this was a good one for him to listen to. Luckily our Corgis don't have tails... but our cats do. Too bad there's not a "Don't Hit Your Pets" book. I guess that would fall under the Hands Are Not for Hitting book, huh? Oh, well... we are still trying to correct some of his behaviors as he is definitely in full "terrible twos" mode now. Mama needs patience... LOTS of it!

Anyways, we also "rented" some movies at the library too... for the hubby and me. :) Gotta love FREE stuff! I hope you all take advantage of your local libraries! They are so great!

We have the "Hands Are Not for Hitting" book and my son loves it. I think they are very helpful. Simple and to the point. Your post reminded me that I want to start taking my son to our local library.

I love reading with my kids. Especially now that my daughter is old enough to read along with me. There's nothing like a good book to teach life lessons, too.

I wish I had a library near my house. The only library is in the ghetto. I'm talking really bad and I won't go near it. They were supposed to build a new one by my house, instead they are building a rec center. Like we need another rec center for kids to hang out in and shoot eachother.

Aren't local libraries wonderful! We've always been loyal patrons to ours. When my daughter was little any question she had that I couldn't give a proper answer to was looked into at the library along with our stash of picture books and later novels. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my pumpkin pictures. I love the bright colors too, can you tell? hehe

Libraries are great, aren't they? We used to live about 5 minutes from one and we'd stock up on books, DVDs, magazines, and more.

Now, the nearest library is about 25 minutes away so we don't go as often...
