I imagine that 5-years-old is a tough age for my little girl. She has an older brother that’s nearly 16-years-old; she can’t do everything that he can do. She is learning to do more on her own, God bless her independent little soul. She’s always been a huge lover of books. Her favorite things to do are read, organize her bookshelves, and hang out at the library and book stores.
Yes, you read that right. This little lady loves book stores and libraries. She loves to read and she began to read at an early age, so now she’s at a point where she’s beyond starter books but doesn’t yet have the endurance for full chapter books. Heck, most times I don’t even have the attention span for a chapter book!
