We love the library!

After running a couple errands this morning, I took my boys (ages 5 and 11 months) to the library.  The little guy fell asleep in the car and slept in his car seat in the library the whole time, so I got to spend some good time with my 5 year old, Levi.  We read and read and read....  The only reason we were ready to go home was because it was wayyyyy past lunchtime and we were hungry.  It always feels so good to spend time together like that....when you can learn AND have fun :)  

We checked out "Pirates Don't Take Baths" and "The True Story of The Three Little Pigs".  

Do you enjoy time at the library?  What kind of books do your kids like?

We love the library and go typicallly more when they have their craft events.   DD right now is into fairy tale books so we got hansel and gretel, the gingerbread man, falling for rapunzel and The duckling gets a cookie by mo willems(not a fairy tale).

Ooo, we love Mo Willems books!  They are so entertaining!

We live in a teensy town between two smallish towns.  One library (the one we went to today) has a great children's book section, but their story time (a time for crafts, books, and games) stinks.  The other library is just the opposite.  So, we enjoy the crafts at the other library :)

We go almost every week! My son loves story time, and he usually checks out books about space, Star Wars, pirates, and Tacky the Penguin. :-)

Cute!  I haven't heard of Tacky the Penguin.  I'll have to look that up!

I love the library!  When my girls were little I would take them to story time once a week and then spend the afternoon at the library until we would do a picnic lunch at the park next to the library.  Now my kids are getting older (elementary school & Jr. High) they do their own thing when we go which gives me time to actually look for books for myself.

They're pretty cute, the librarian first turned us on to them. They're picture books.
