Nite Nite

"Good children's literature appeals not only to the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child." -- Anonymous

Nice and quiet and cool in my house tonight. Chris is at the Falcons game tonight and should be home pretty late. Both girls are in bed. I caught up on some of my TiVo and laundry so all is well in my little world.

KJ has to read every night for school and keep track of what she reads in her agenda and give her opinion about what she's read. She's really been into the Magic Tree House series (which I totally love because not only are they reading, but they're learning a little bit about history, too!). Tonight she decided she wanted to read something else so we started to read "Eloise in Hollywood." She asked Chris last night if they could go to FAO Schwarz when they go to NY so I reminded her that the Plaza, where, Eloise lives, is right across the street so I'm thinking that's what sparked tonight's book selection. She got a little frustrated while reading because she couldn't "do" Eloise as well as I do. I get very dramatic when I read outloud to her and use different voices for the different characters. Anyway, tonight in her agenda she wrote, "I LOVE when Eloise talks fancy." As Eloise would say, "I thought that was rawther cute!"

I've traveled the world twice over,
Met the famous; saints and sinners,
Poets and artists, kings and queens,
Old stars and hopeful beginners,
I've been where no-one's been before,
Learned secrets from writers and cooks
All with one library ticket
To the wonderful world of books.
