We enjoyed a visit to our local library. The boys earned their first summer reading prizes: a free book and a coupon for free ice cream (we racked up a ton of points with today‘s visit and various challenges we were able to complete). #blackboyjoy #brilliantblackboy #raisingreaders #boysreadtoo #librarianmom #kidsoflitsy

Chelleo @Kayla.Adriena Yes, my husband is UT alum and we stopped by the Barnes and Noble bookstore on our way back home from Michigan 5mo
gallowbraids Books are the only thing my kid can always ask for when going to a store and never been told no. Pretty sure it is the only reason he likes going to bookstores at all :P 5mo
Chelleo @gallowbraids Lucky kid! And who doesn‘t love going to a bookstore!?! 5mo

On a related note, while I was opening my swap packages this morning, Faela (oldest stepdaughter) was practically drooling over it. Parents and teachers, who would be interested in doing a kids‘ book swap (if one doesn‘t already exist). I know my girls love getting mail and reading, and I know all of us teachers spend a butt ton of money on classroom libraries. #teachersoflitsy #litsyswaps #parentsoflitsy #momsoflitsy #dadsoflitsy #kidsoflitsy

SmartSassery I was thinking this for my little as well. 😍💕 Even a small penpal group. 6mo
MolliesaurusRex @SmartSassery yesss! Obviously some planning time would need to go into it but I think it would be so great. I know as a stepmom and a teacher, I want to encourage as many children to read as much as they can as humanly possible! 6mo
SmartSassery They would love it. I think this is a great plan. 6mo

My 8yo would like to recommend the Ben Braver series for anyone who liked Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja or The 13 Storey Treehouse series - chapter books with loads of humour - great for 7 - 10 year olds. #kidsoflitsy #chapterbooks

Woke up to find my almost 6 year old reading on his own in his book corner. Also, it happened to be one of his German books - Die Kleine Biene (The Little Bee) so this made me very happy! #kidsoflitsy #duallanguagelearners

Enjoying the playground and Kam took a break to look at my book. He picked out some of his sight words.
