My little reader. This girl loves to read. And I love that she loves to read. She has plowed through almost every ‘kids’ book we own (and we have quite a collection) and is constantly asking for more.
Last week she decided that she would start the Little House collection. I saved the whole collection I got as a gift when I was ten or eleven years old. That’s when I read them. I became obsessed interested in Laura Ingalls Wilder after that & read as much about her as I could from what was in my middle school library. And of course I watched the TV Show pretty religiously… I even remember western/pioneer fashion being very popular.
(I’d insert my 7th grade photo with me wearing the purple and blue plaid ruffled shirt – but the laughter would be too deafening)
She’s seven – and she’s already into second book of the collection. Already.
I don’t think she’ll be quite as interested in Laura Ingalls as she is in Hannah Montana or The Jonas Brothers… but we’ll see.
