#85 – Create a reading nook for Henry

I bought Henry his first book when I was seventeen and an exchange student in Japan; the Hungry Caterpillar in Japanese.  Since then, every country I’ve visited, I bought a children’s book for my future kids, and when Adam came along, he started doing it as well.  So little Henry has books from Japan, Australia, Ireland (x2), France (x2) and South Africa.  Add to that the incredible generosity of our friends and family, plus the crate of books Adam’s parents gifted him at Christmas, Henry has quite the library.

We just installed some extra ledges to hold them all, and bought a couple throw pillows to make a little nook for him (more for our comfort than his at this point!).

    Love, love, love. The kids and I like to haunt thrift stores when we are traveling: small towns have crazy cheap prices on kids books! I also highly recommend you get this book right away: http://smile.amazon.com/Read-Aloud-Handbook-Seventh-Jim-Trelease/dp/014312160X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422155294&sr=8-1&keywords=read+aloud+handbook. We’ve made our way through all the picture books and are into the chapter books with our kids and almost all are big hits!
