The younger two are stepping up to the literary plate this summer with choices from our local library's summer reading program. Lil was a bit resistant but the librarian talked her into a book on fairy tales and princesses. I think she really wanted one on fashion design and was eyeing the Judy Moodys but she was game. Vyolette, however, stormed into the library on a mission. She's headed to Kindergarten this fall and she would NOT be ignored (cue creepy Glenn Close close up).
Librarian: Great! I see you signed up for our program! What would you like to start with? Princesses (spying Lily's book)? How about fairies?
Librarian giving me the eye: Oh. I think you're a little young for zombies. They're icky.
Vyo giving her the eye: I think we're done here.
Filled with bat facts, bat stories, bat poop and cranky-looking bat photos, she was delighted and carries it around with her in a small bag in case anyone asks a random bat question.
My baby's a chip off the old block...
What's on your summer reading list?
Mine after The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide and Zombie Tarot are wrapped up and sent to happy editors:
