Getting a library card is a rite of passage in our family. Yesterday, Maddie, James, and I walked down to our little local branch on Alondra and got Maddie a card. She was very excited by the library, and being able to take home books. I had to sign her full name on the back of the card which was kind of odd, I only think I've written it out once or twice. She even got a canvas book bag for opening an account, although next time I think she will use her My Friends Tigger and Pooh backpack because she loves it and can actually carry it. Because she was (relatively) well behaved at the library we got mini donuts on the way home.
(Please excuse the quality of the pictures, they were taken on my phone . . .
also, who knew that Yum Yum Donuts on Alondra and Pioneer is really, really nice inside? Like, nicer than Starbucks . . . they have granite!)
We read three of her books last night, several times each. It cracks me up that she puts her finger to her mouth and says "shhhhh!" every time she asks for the Goodnight Sleepyhead book.
I am so proud of my little bookworm!
This lovely little story is called Maisy Goes to the Library, we have read it four times
