For the love of books

I am all kinds of obsessed with books. I read non-stop and it’s something that I have loved doing for as long as I remember. To me there is nothing more satisfying than going to a book shop and buying ALL the books.

I have very successfully passed this on to my daughter. She loves books, loves visits to the library and reading before bedtime is her favorite part of the day.

Until recently, her choice of books had a sentence per page and were not all that much fun for mom to read. I love a good story and Spot just wasn’t doing it for me!

To save my marbles, I went and bought ‘The Giraffe, The Pelly and me’ by Roald Dahl, who is still to this day one of my favorite Authors. She loved it! We read it over the course if a few days and she was totally into this book. Since then we have also read ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ and are currently reading ‘Mathilda’.

This mom is thrilled to be reading a story that she enjoys too.

Books for the future include:

George’s marvelous medicine
Charlie and the chocolate factory
The twits
James and the giant peach

Also very excited to start her on Enid Blytons ‘Folk of the Faraway Tree’.

Reliving my childhood with my daughter is a dream come true!
