Today was the kindergarten’s “100 Day Museum'”display in the library at school. When children reach the 100 day milestone, they make a project at home, something that contains 100 objects. Classes are invited to the ‘museum’. We even had tickets in order to attend. Yes, it’s a big deal. We were at the museum, admiring every 100 Day display. Then it happened.
“Jennie, come here! Come quick! Now!”
That’s what I heard from Harry. He grabbed my hand and pulled me over to a corner in the library. He was beside himself at what he saw:
No, it wasn’t the picture on the top shelf. It was in the lower right hand corner, a box collection of the Little House books. The front picture is exactly the book we are currently reading, “Little House in the Big Woods”.
What a wonderful discovery! Other children immediately came over. Harry’s discovery now became their discovery. It was a moment. Three cheers to libraries and all they do to open so many doors for children. Harry made the connection that our chapter reading book was a ‘real’ library book.
