I'm pretty sure we've already caught it...

The theme of our library's summer reading program this year is "Catch the Reading Bug".






I think it's safe to say we've already caught it...don't you?

Abbey has been reading since Christmas. We all love to read, and we are a BIG library family. One of our favorite things about summer is the reading program at our library. This is the first year that Abbey can complete it on her own without help from a family member, and she is super excited about it. She checked out a stack of books yesterday and is raring to go! Will and Sarah are too.

Anyone else remember Dick and Jane books? Abbey recently checked out this big collection, and had a blast reading it. It definitely took me back a few decades!

The reading bug is so much better than a video-game bug! We've "exterminated" those!!

As a former kindergarten teacher, I must say, I'm impressed!

My oldest is just getting into books. I read constantly as a child. I can't wait for her to discover this wonderful world.

I used to read those books, but they looked ALOT different back 45 YEARS AGO!!!!!!

We are going to the library tomorrow to sign up for our summer reading.

Thanks for the reply to my blog. It makes me so sad about Julie G. I have absolutely NO communication with her..

Hugs,
Julie

I love to read! Summer reading is the best!

Has your son read any of the Wimpy kid books? They sound strange but they are so popular around here. The kids in the neighborhood all talk about the books! It's so cute!

I did the Dick and Jane book with my daughter this year. I supposedly bought it for her reading but I really bought it for me! Does bring back fun memories.

Lurve the library in this fam. Also, don'tcha love those free summer movies, too? Very cool. And...don't forget about the ice cream truck!

I bought Dick and Jane volumes at Costco several years back for my kids. Very sweet. Brought me back to first grade in 1975!
