This is where my love affair with books began... summer days browsing books on the Bookmobile. It would drive out to the country every two weeks and we could get new books. Nancy Drew, Encyclopedia Brown, Little House on the Prairie, Little Women, Charlotte's Web, Judy Blume, Boxcar Children.... when the afternoon would get too hot to play you could grab your book and stretch out on the porch swing with a popsicle and read.
That is why I am obsessed with summer reading. As soon as I saw the display at Barnes and Noble for the summer reading program I snatched up the form. Somehow I didn't see the same excitement when I came dancing in the door to show my boys. Hmmmm..... What could be more exciting than reading 8 books and getting a FREE book?!?
Some of the books on our summer reading list:
What is on your summer reading list? Your children? Where is your favorite place to read?
