Summer Reading Program

Remember summer reading programs from your local library? My mom is an avid reader and we'd go to the library at least once a week. Her best advice to me is to NEVER tick off the librarian as she/he has the power to make your life miserable.

Since M is doing some rudimentary reading, we decided to enroll her in our library's program. We belong to two library's because our local one is a bit limited. M read 15 books this summer and got to pick prizes from both libraries. At one of the libraries, she picked an inflatable ball after she finished reading her first five books. She picked a little blue rubber ballerina doll (who she has now named Pretty Sparkle) when she reached 10 books. We sort of blackmailed her into reading the next five books in that we said she could get a friend for her ballerina.

Here are her dolls: Princess (orange) and Pretty Sparkle (blue).

She loves to pose them and pretend they dance.

I think "Pretty Sparkle" is a very good name for a ballerina.
