Madison had her first library visit with Gramma last weekend. I’ve gone to the library many times, the first five years ago. Looking back, some of my first library experience was similar to Madison’s.
My mom is not into reading or books at all, and it seems Madison is following that same track. She did look at some books, but meeting stuffed friends was far more interesting. The highlight of the day was meeting and posing for a photo with the famous red dog, Clifford! I too posed with Clifford on my first library visit!
If you don’t know Clifford, he has written many, many great books. Being Clifford, he did manage to get Madison so sit down and read one of his books for a little while at least.
Curious George was also at the library when Madison was there. She later told me, he was her favorite because he seemed to be the most adventurous of all the friends she met. I can imagine her hanging out with Curious George and getting into some trouble!
Out of nowhere came this handsome big shaggy fellow with a rose for Madison. Normally she is crazy about boys, but she says he was a bit odd. Perhaps he came on a little too strong? I think she prefers boys that are more on the wild side and not so serious.
After hanging out for a while, it was time to leave. Madison wanted to bring some of her new friends home, but not any books – no surprise there! Even if she didn’t do much reading on her first library visit, it was still a good experience for her!
