We love reading!

2012 is the National Year of Reading. And we are a family of readers so I thought I'd share what we are reading this week. And hopefully I'll keep doing so throughout the year.

Friday is Mobile Library day in town. The truck stops right outside Aden's daycare and he is always happy to go to the 'Library Bus' when I collect him in the afternoon.

Aden is loving sea creatures at the moment, with whales and dolphins being his favourite. We picked out a few simple information book called  'Animal Babies in the Seas' and 'Whales and Dolphins'. The second one has 'flip the flaps' that show whales using their blowholes and splashing their tails into the water. Aden is really enjoying them and is starting to remember and repeat the facts as we read them.

This is the real reason I'm writing this post...to show you this book.

When a generous quiltmaker finally agrees to make a quilt for a greedy king, but only under certain conditions, she causes him to undergo a change of heart.

The Quilt Makers Gift by Jeff Brumbeau is a beautiful story on the reason why I believe so many quilters make quilts and give them away....to see the joy and smiles on face of those they love!

Each page highlights a different quilt block pattern whose name relates to the unfolding story.

The book is filled with beautiful quilt blocks and the illustrations are very rich and vibrant in colour.

There is also a prequel and a quilt pattern book that go with it.

Does anyone else go to the Library with their children to pick picture books that they love to read?
