Since a young age, I have LOVED the library. I love the smell, the sounds, and the books. Libraries are AWESOME. It is my goal to share this love with by kiddos. I have taken both of my little ones to participate in baby/toddler/preschool story time programs. Each week, I let my little man pick new books, while I find chapter books for his sister. His enjoyment brightens my day. One of his first phrases: "My book." Why yes, I am a proud Mama. I can see them acquiring the love I have for libraries. YAY!
However, in all of this I have my jeers. Each time we bring home a new batch of books I remind the kids that they must NOT run off with the books and lose them. My words are always in vain. Every week it is a mad book hunt, and I am the only willing huntress. This past week is a hunt that has me stumped. We are missing a book. I dread going back to the library to tell them that the chaos that is my house has devoured one of their lovely books.
Are you a library book worm?
Does your family have a special way of keeping track of your library treasures?
