- As soon as you get home, write the due date of your books on your wall calendar or in your planner.
- Plan a library day a few days prior to your due date and write it in as well.
- Keep all of your library books in one place.
- Have a library bag and ensure that all books are accounted for and in the bag the night before your trip to the library to be frugal with your time.
- Take advantage of all the library services including books, books on tapes or CD’s, videos and DVD’s as well as any special classes and story times that are available!
We spend much of our day in the bathroom where we work on our learning poster and that is where we keep all our library books in a basket. I keep them there so that we don’t end up misplacing one when we return them. On occasion we will remove one and go up to the library to read it however that usually results in a forgotten book (like last week!) which spells out late fees 🙂
We actually returned our library books last week and are due to go again next Wednesday April 22nd. Our library visit coincides with the day we go out on cupcake delivery. We do have quite a few books at home so let me share with you what we are reading.
- John (8 months)

So from our home library, these are our current favorites:
These are adorable touchy-feely books by Usborne. Great quality and, though simple, there are many opportunities to teach colors and textures. Chloe loves these books, the one some of her favorites. She can “read” them to me by feeling the pictures, she knows what the page says.
Chloe loves this book. I think it may be her favorite book. If not #1 then he #2 favorite! She wanted to read it every time we went potty for the entire 2-3 weeks that our learning poster theme was about dinosaurs. I was so glad to move one 🙂 It really is a great book with a great teaching opportunity. It is about a dinosaur who goes around scaring people, thinking he is funny. He loses his friends and his voice. In the end, he says sorry, saves his friends and everyone lives happily ever after. It is rated a level three reader.
This is Chloe’s other favorite book. It is a very easy read, though not rated. It is a cute, short rhyming pocket-sized book about a bear who ends up at the garbage dump by accident.
A sweet collection of short stories that they say was written with the help of a language expert for young children learning to read. Chloe likes the stories because they all involve a little girl and a little boy and their adventures on the farm.
These are books that I am currently reading and almost done. I will add a brief review once I have finished the books so be sure to come back!
One of my favorite authors!
The title turned me off originally as I immediately associated it with whatever that show was that was on TV about housewives. After hearing so many women who I respect talking about it, I purchased it. I am almost through it and it has been an amazing read.
The Love Dare by Stephen Kendrick
