Sick: Read a funny book!

By Shara Lawrence-Weiss

Over in the kid’s area we have a bookshelf set up. We have a bookshelf in almost every room of our home but I like having one in the main kid’s area, also. I want my children to see books, often, and to be reminded of their presence. I want them to feel free to pick up a story and flip through.

Kid's Corner 2

Last week my kids were all sick. They took turns dealing with a stomach bug, spending time on the couch, recuperating. At one point I rounded the corner and found my six year old reading a book to her four year old brother. She told me, “I’m reading to my brother to make him feel better!”

Reading What's Silly

I love that – great moment! She had selected a funny story – of course! We love to laugh…

The book: “What’s Silly?”

I searched Online to find this story but I cannot locate it; it’s an older book and might be out of print now. At any rate – offer your children a wide range of books to select from, within their reach. It works!
