What do you do with a 1 year old on a rainy fall day? Head to the Huron County Library. Bea loves books. We have been reading her books since she was a wee baby. Her book shelves are full; some of her favourites are Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? By Bill Martin Jr and I Love My Daddy Because by Laurel Porter-Gaylord.
I bundle her up and off we go to the Goderich Branch. There is a children’s section of the library which is great! We head down the steps once we enter the library to a sea of books. The place is all to ourselves as no other children are there.
I found this book on the shelf and it seemed appropriate for a day like today: Rain Rain Go Away, by Caroline Jayne Church
She is trying to tell me she wants that one on the third shelf….reach!!!
A little side note. I love the fact that there is a washroom on the same level as the children’s books. You don’t have to walk your children up to the 3rd level. A minor detail to some, but very important to parents.
It was a wonderful 1st mother-daughter experience at the Huron County Library. We last about 30 minutes before it was time to head home. It is a place where your children can explore different worlds, people and things through pictures and stories. I hope she continues to love books. This is a place that will become a ritual for us…rainy day or not.
