Going to the library is one of the favorite things my kids love to do. Our local library has an amazing children’s section, from computers to puzzles, activity pages to a dollhouse, a puppet area and the beloved wooden train track table. And of course a huge selection of great books!
One of my summer jobs as a teen was working in the local library. My favorite section to work in was the children’s section. I loved seeing the new books coming in every week. I’d flip through them and enjoy seeing a variety of illustrators. How fun would it be to write and illustrate a book?
I don’t know about you, but one of the things I love about reading is to be able to flip through the pages and enjoy that new book smell. I know these days people have their e-readers and downloads.
It’s compact; you can store a number of books and have plenty of shelf space left at home. I love technology and new gadgets, however I don’t see myself buying one anytime soon. Call me old school but I still enjoy reading in print and turning pages, not swiping a screen. Illustrations look better to me on paper, it’s like art at my fingertips. So for now, I will continue to borrow and buy my kids good old books.
What do you prefer a book or e-reader?
