Books... I LOVE to read.
As a child it helped me to escape some pretty tough times.
It was a place of friendship, overcoming adversity, strong characters, witty remarks, magic, adventure... I want to give my children this gift, in a world of technology and instant gratification (which are amazing in their own ways), I want them to still see the beauty of a book and the ability to slip wholly into another world.
So we have books, we have A LOT of books. Every room houses books... Our bookcase in our front room is BIG and overflowing!
The girls use books in play, they can't read yet but I often find piles of my books laying around, they use them in their imaginative games... They are spell books or books they are writing or books from Demon world (totally normal!)... I've found book trails leading the way to a teddy audience or for their cars to drive along.
Our books have been stepping stones and building blocks and tunnels... Then comes the reading... Because my guys really enjoy being read to. We read often, the bus is one of our favourite reading places but we will read ANYWHERE! We're still slowly making our way through the Chamber of Secrets... A few pages here and there. My 6yo is enjoying it sooo much!
Just recently I've started finding books in piles, where they look more like they're being read... And they ARE!
My Eldest can now read and he is holding little reading sessions with his sisters.
Our @maverick_books are some they were reading today, alongside Dan and the Enchanted Crystal.
I LOVE books and it makes my heart sing to see my guys are loving them too!
