We also recently pulled a number of boxes of books out of storage.
So, this is a place where we'll talk about some of the books we're reading.
The last couple of nights, our second-grader has asked me to read Amelia Bedelia Books. If you've never read an Amelia Bedelia book, you're in for a special treat. Amelia is a bright young woman who takes everything literally. In Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor, when Mr. Rogers suggests that Amelia run for the Mayor's office, she puts on her track shoes and runs out the door toward City Hall. At the same time as it pokes fun at our crazy language, the book affirms the importance of keeping promises.
One of the things that struck me about Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping was the Mr. and Mrs. Rogers take Amelia Bedelia with them on their camping trip, even though she is just the hired help. Caitlin and I talked about how that Mr. and Mrs. Rogers still care for Amelia Bedelia, even though they find her antics frustrating at times--especially when she pitches the tent -- into the bushes.
