I’m delighted to be featured at All the Wonders this week talking about one of the most often heard phrases in our home – bring a book!
Summer has always been analogous with reading for me, as far back as I can remember. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the other summery things too—the swimming pools, the backyard barbecues, the roasted marshmallows, summer camp, the fireflies, the road trips, all of it. But for me, those things all had one thing in common—the book that was (and still is) always tucked safely in my bag. Just in case.
Now, as a mother of two young boys, these are the reminders as we get ready to leave the house:
Did you brush your teeth?
Yes, you have to wear shoes!
Bring a book!
And at least one member of our family takes that last reminder very seriously.
|Reading at Six Flags…|
|and at Go! St. Louis marathon…|
|in between customers…|
|and at the beach. Like mother, like son here.|
Today, I’d like to share a few book recommendations for all the places you or your children might find yourselves this summer. They range in age from picture books to young adult. So, brush your teeth, grab your shoes, and above all, bring a book!
