Summer Reading Program Bonds Grandma and Grandson Even More
July 05, 2013
I picked up some library books to read to my grandson for the summer reading program this year. I found Can You See What I See? Seymour Makes New Friends, a search-and-find storybook by Walter Wick, and thought he might like it. The book has a few pictures on the left side of the page and then you try to find them as hidden objects in the bigger picture on the right side of the page.
He loved the book! So much that now when he comes in and I am sitting in my recliner with the foot extension out, he says,"How about some books?" and goes to get the book from the stack of library books to look at it yet again. He climbs up on the foot extension and sprawls there over my legs to look at the book and find the "boy." “Oh, there he is!" By now he has the book memorized, but it so fun that my grandson likes to look at books and spend time with me doing one of my favorite things.
The Summer Reading Program at MCPL is a great way to introduce children to reading and at the same time get three free books for their own. I plan on doing it with my grandson as long as he will let me. I hope he gets the reading bug and enjoys books on his own as he grows older.
