Giving Book Love

I love libraries. I love the smell of books and being surrounded by words and worlds of possibility. Library visits have always been the highlight of my week. And now, when I need to recharge, I curl up with a good book and I’m happy. 

My 11 year old daughter, Naomi, shares my love of books. She reminds me of myself when she reads as she walks down the street or brushes her teeth. Just last night I caught her reading at 10:37 pm--way too late for a school night (or any night!)  We often have reading parties sprawled on my bed, immersed in our imaginations. 

In September, a few weeks after we embarked on our homeschooling adventure, Naomi announced she needed to learn more.  I told her to find a project that would occupy her mind and heart and help her learn.
