As part of our summer routine, we do reading time twice a day--in the morning and in the afternoon. Sometimes I read to the girls--library books or pictures books or Harry Potter or Ramona or stories from The Friend or whatever--and sometimes I have them do silent reading time. Even though Helena can't read yet, she loves to look at books--some of her favorites are Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Time's 100 Best Photographs.
Today I took pictures of Tempe and Helena doing their silent reading
Tempe discovered that our cardboard playhouse is the perfect place to plop down with a book.
"Bad Kitty vs. Uncle Murray"
Helena prefers the couch and lots of pillows.
"Diary of a Wimpy Kid"
