        I was going to suggest sharing it on their FB page but it looks like that feature is disabled. You could e-mail the manager from the branch page on the website, or I could forward the link to them.

    1. Yes, he’s truly reading and comprehending. When he’s done with a book, he’ll spend a half hour telling me all about the characters and what happened. It’s interesting… I never really “taught” him to read, except by reading a ton to him, having a book-filled house (my husband and I are always reading 2-3 books at a time), playing letter / word games with him, and providing him with beginning readers when he showed interest. Now he’s reading at a level several years above his age. He loves it!

    1. He continued to read on the drive home from the library, and then sat down on the couch and finished the book before dinner. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for not sitting your child on the couch with an iPad…I want to see more kids read! When I was little my Mom couldn’t get me to take a break from reading books. πŸ™‚

    A wonderful sight: a child reading a book – outdoors too!
    I hope he took a pile of books home too.
