Hi readers! It’s Courtney from Stiletto Storytime here to keep you going for the next few hours. I’m so excited to be co-hosting again this year and able to share this great event with all of you. I hope you are all still going strong as we passed the half way mark just a short hour ago. I woke up this morning not feeling so well but am determined to push on through…after all this is Dewey Day and we only get it twice a year right?
We’re all here because we love to read. It’s really that simple. As a children’s librarian I’ve learned that that little seed of books and reading was probably planted long ago. For me when I think of my childhood and books…lots of things come to mind and Reading Rainbow is one of them. Whenever I hear the theme song to Reading Rainbow I go back to a simpler time when books equaled pure happiness in the simplest form. So I thought I would take you back to that childhood moment for a just a second. Maybe Reading Rainbow did the same for you, maybe your kids watched it or maybe it will lead you to think of a favorite childhood reading memory of your own. Maybe it will make you smile…if so then mission accomplished.
So as we head into hour 13 of reading…share something that sticks out about books and reading from your own childhood. Maybe it was a certain person that got you reading or a book that you just could not put down? Now off you go..READ!
