While You Were Gone…

Every once in awhile, the kids come in their room to find their animals have been reading!

It’s an instant invitation to curl up and read.

And laugh.

I’ll add in something like “You’ve been reading to Riley Dog so much, he’s learning to read!” or “Looks like Riley Dog really wants you to finish that story with him!”

Happy Reading, Friends!  Shelisa

PS. Sometimes, their animals show up in other areas…building blocks, starting a family jigsaw puzzle, counting coins, experimenting in the Science Lab, at the kitchen table doing some Art, or in the Book Nook….They’re quite advanced. The key is not to do it too often.

  1. This is a wonderful post! Love. it! I’m following you from Tuesday Tots Linky Party. Hope you’ll visit my blog sometime: Kindergarten & Preschool for Parents & Teachers.

  2. This is a fab idea. There are lots of kitties around our house who are just dying to get their paws on a book. I think it’s time to help them out! 🙂
