Summer reading

“I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.”  Anna Quindlen

Our library had a fun summer reading program for kids.  They signed up in June, received a folder for recording the books read, and were promised wonderful prizes for completing the program.  Our summers were filled with weekly visits to the library, returning books read, collecting new books, and depositing little slips of paper into the Summer Reading prize box.

I don’t remember if the girls ever won a prize.  I do remember that there was a lot of reading going on, in their rooms, on the deck, in the garden, even in that cool hide-out they “built” in the woods behind the house.  An it made me happy.
