When I was a child I could spend hours upon hours reading. I consumed novels in the summer as if they were food and they kind of were. In summer as a child I had all the time in the world just to read. In school, I loved a good reading challenge too.

Those cute hands on school science projects were amazing opportunities for me to learn, apply and retain the information. Sometimes that is all it takes to make those lessons memorable. Later on, we went on to have frogs and fish and even a turtle as a childhood pet. Watching them grow and learning about how to take care of each one was a great opportunity for everyone. Eventually we got a cat and fish plus cats, well we all know how that goes, right?

What are You Reading?
What kinds of books are your kids interested in? Do they love reading as much as I do, as much as you do?
During the pandemic I have been reading more than ever. I suspect many people have rediscovered a passion for novels. In fact, I kind of have my own reading challenge going on. One week last month I decided my books were a little bit stale, so I drove around town to the Little Free Library locations. While we might not be able to travel out of town, we can definitely travel through literature. Kids can do the same.
Adult Reading Journals
I still have several of them. BOY, could I ever read pre-children, anyways.
