Today was the first day of school for summer. Seth and I started off at swim team and then he request to go to Compton's Kitchen for breakfast.
After we headed over to the library and when we walked in Seth grabbed a book of the first display table and said , "This looks like the kind of book you would want to read with me," which was absolutely true because I was about to reach for it but he got it before I could.
Sometimes I just get a feeling about a book, like a wave of peacefulness comes over me when I look at or hold a new book, and that's often how I choose what we read together.
My instinct is usually right and today was no different. Roxaboxen was lovely book about the true story of some children in the Arizona desert who made a play town primarily out of their imaginations. Even though the book is recommended from ages 5 - 8, Seth and I both enjoyed it very much
