Happy New Year! I am starting 2017 with a review of books from 2016. Here is the consolidated list (libraryrecap).
I have enjoyed writing this blog. I began writing to explain to my new nephew, why I chose the books he received as a birth gift. My family encouraged me to write a blog. They seem to think that I know something about children’s books. They are so lovely and kind! What I know about children’s books is that I like them. If I could, I would inspire every child with the love of reading. I like reading books. I like paring books with ideas, events and activities.
Since they encouraged me to write, I have been writing this blog for my pleasure and practice. Sometimes, but not often, it gets me out of dinner dishes (I can’t do dishes tonight, I have to work on my blog). If I had stopped with the volumes purchased for my new nephew, it would have been a very short blog. When I finished his list I segued to the rest of my children’s book collection. Many of these books are old favorites of mine. It has been a lovely walk down memory lane. As I reread and write about these books, I remember snuggling up with my girls and sharing these stories. Reading to children is a wonderful activity. It was fun, fun, fun to read and discover these books with my girls. It was fun, fun, fun to remember that time through this blog.
My family has become accustom to keeping a list of their readings for the monthly reading report. I hope that you have enjoyed these reports. 2016 was a very enjoyable reading year! I hope it is another good year for reading and for all other endeavors.
Happy New Year to everyone! May your year be productive, satisfying and fun! Find some good books to read. Here are some of the books that were read in Haus Reimund in 2016.
