Favorite Columbus Bookstore

Today was a rainy day on spring break so Lucy and I headed to Cover to Cover Bookstore in Clintonville. After reading some great blogs I was reminded what a great place this is! I had been there in college and as an early elementary teacher but this was my first adventure as a parent. What kid can resist the big red dog Clifford in this store? Lucy was in love at first sight with this cuddly character. I found some great new books for my friend Leslie's new baby. I got Eric Carle's The Very Busy Spider and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

I also got Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and John Henry by Julius Lester. I'm excited to share these new reads with my second graders next week. If you are ever in the Clintonville area be sure to visit this great store!

My Little Reader

This is my little reader, book taster, page turner Lucy! The first picture is at 5 months old and the bottom is now at 13 months.

She began hearing stories read aloud daily from the womb! I try to squeeze in reading to her every day but of course some days are better than others! Her favorite books seem to be the ones I sing to her like The Itsy Bitsy Spider and The Wheels on the bus. She loves books with flaps tpo turn and pages that have material to touch and feel. I am hoping she will learn to love stories and reading as much as me someday:)
