Celebrate Reading

There are so many ways to cultivate a love of reading in children through celebrating books. Books make a wonderful baby gift, especially when embellished with handmade bookplates and presented in a personalized book bag. When one of my nephews turned 1, my sister-in-law planned a storybook-themed birthday party and invited guests to bring a new book for the birthday boy. Preschoolers would enjoy a book swap party complete with story time. And older children can organize a book drive or start a book club.

I have a special afternoon planned for my children today, and I'll share all the details of our celebration of books tomorrow!

I have been lurking, dear one, but not taking the time to say hello and let you know how much I enjoy coming to this corner of my world ~ may God continue to bless you richly for the inspiration you are for others and the love you so freely give.

There is no greater gift to give a child than the love of reading!
