My Book Worm

A good friend of mine once told me that it is important to instill the love for books to my kids. That is why even when my eldest is still in utero, my husband and I have started collecting books that we think our kids can enjoy.

That is why when Bela was growing up, books have been a part of her everyday life. I can still remember when she was just 2 or 3 years old, she will ask us to bring to our room all the books in her “I wonder why” collection and she will not go to bed unless we read each of the books to her.

I am the happiest every time she would ask me to buy her a book instead of a toy and this is one request that I will never say No to. So when Bela requested that I fetch her last week so we can go to the Book Fair in the school, I did not think twice and I said yes.

She already checked out the Book Fair even before she asks me and she already knows what book she wants to buy. She got the Geronimo Stilton Book “Field Trip to Niagara Falls” which she started reading as soon as we reached the car and which she finished in one seating.

I learned from friends that there is a whole series for this book so now I know which book to buy Bela next.
