But my six-year-old is another story. Her passion is books. She has little interest in the sewing machine her nana bought her a couple years ago, the cute, pink embroidery hoop or any of the vibrant floss I stocked the craft bin with. Nor yarn, nor fabric in any form. This, however, does not bother me (I have the four-year-old hooked, as I mentioned, so it's cool).
Yesterday, however, I felt a little jolt of joy when she screeched with delight at the sight of a book on cd I brought home from the library. She had already read the story but was really excited to hear it again because it is one of her "very, very favorites."
|Welcome to Camden Falls, the first book in the Main Street series by Ann Martin|
Ok, maybe that has absolutely nothing to do with why she likes it, but I'll take it. And for any of you who have reading age kids (I'd say anywhere from 6 - 11 on this one), this is a great series (at least the parts I've heard so far).
Happy reading — or sewing!
