What We’re Reading

The girls have discovered the world of comic strips – first the Sunday paper, followed by checking out Garfield, Snoopy, and Calvin & Hobbes from the library. I love hearing little giggles as they read, and they love to share their favorites with me, too. Much of the humor goes over their heads, but they don’t seem to mind!

What kinds of reading are your kids doing this summer?

Wishing you a playful week!

You should check out the Toon books at the library. A whole new series of cartoon books for early readers. My girls love them.

(Like Benny and Penny in the Big NO-NO)

Thanks for sharing your ideas!
