I saw an idea online about taking photos of home libraries to capture how they grow - just like children. Our home library has expanded exponentially since we got married and keeps on growing.
We have books on the big shelves (the left shelf is kid books and the right is grown up books):
We have books in each child's room on their night stands, next to which is a chair where we read:
We have books in our breakfast basket at the table:
And we also have books in the car, and on our toy shelves:
Children who love books are never disappointed at our house:
|Mini Me, age 14 months|
|Little Lady, age 12 months|
|We even read the dictionary to our children! (This was a one-time and somewhat odd event although Mini Me thought it was pretty fun and I'm sure he'd listen to his daddy read the dictionary again.)|
Our home library is big and wonderful and we love when it grows as we add new books to our collection (my husband and I are still amazed at how many children's books we can recite by memory so new material is good for us). It will be interesting to see how our home library changes as the children grow. Good bye board books, hello young adult lit!
It is one of my greatest hopes that all four of us will be life long book lovers and it feels like we are well on our way.
