Today is my son’s last day of school for the summer.
“Hurray!” says he.
“Writing time has just gotten a little wonkier,” says Mom.
But I don’t entirely mind because it is also the time of year where we can spend major amounts of time in the library together. We go to various family and children’s programs but he also picks out a lot of books and audiobooks. His theme for the summer — banned books. He was appalled when he heard me reading this article to my husband and thus discovered that two of his favorite authors, Peg Kehret and Bruce Coville, are frequently banned.
Whether you are checking out banned books or just looking for something fun to do with your young reader, support your local library. There’s no telling what fun you’ll discover there. Watch this video to see what I mean.
