Valentine Books and a Fun Valentine Outing

One of the best things we did last week was go to the bookstore. We didn't buy a single thing. We did, however, sit in the children's section and read book after book. There is NOBODY in the bookstore at 11 a.m. on a weekday. It was like our own personal library, complete with beanbags, soft music, and all the wonderful, new books we could imagine.

I'm going to take them back on Valentine's Day and treat them to a hot chocolate and a dessert and do it again -- my Valentine present to them.

Some of our favorites:

Do your kids read Amelia Bedelia? This one is about Amelia when she was little.... and it includes the typical Amelia humor.

This little book was a great rhyming story - I love anything by Cynthia Rylant.

I sang this to GMan - I remember my dad singing it to me when I was little.

I know that the days of little ones curling up next to me while I read story books won't last forever, so any chance I get to read to them I take. I will miss that one day.
