The Cart Has Been Wheeled Over

About a year ago, when our son was 1-1/2 years old, you could read the same book over and over and over again to him, with no complaint.  He even had In The Night Kitchen, memorized since we read it a lot.  We had Sandra Boynton's Going to Bed Book memorized to the point that whenever he heard the words, "The sun has set, not long ago..." he would begin crying since it signaled bed time.

Skip to today, our son would rather "read" the new books.  Same with videos and food too.  Anything new, he will devour, and anything old, he will pass over.

So if you need a new book to read to your child, and the library is closed, walk your laundry, or yourselves over to our corner laundromat for a story!

Crossing the street.

Organizing the books.
Sort of organized....notice my all time favorite book at top:
My First reader!  A boy who was there, circled the scene, scoped out the bookcart, and as soon as I stepped away to speak with Mr. Lee, the manager, he grabbed a book and sat down next to his grandfather.  By the time I left, he was on his third book.  I told his grandfather to go to the website to vote on a day to do storytime. 

As I was leaving, another woman, who was doing laundry with no children in tow, came up to me and told me, "This is a very nice gesture."

We shall see how it grows!
