Literacy Thursday

**Welcome to Literacy Thursdays. This post is designed to highlight some of our favorite books in hopes that you will blog about yours. We are always looking for new books to discover. Literacy is so important and even at the youngest of ages is crucial to development. If you don't have children of your own volunteer at a school, read to a neighborhood child, but get involved. It's a great way to share quality time with the youngest of our society.

Here's the play by play: You blog about your book. Give me a shout out in your blog by creating a link to my blog and using my Literacy button. Then at the bottom of my post, you will find Mr. Linky. Sign your name and add the web address of your post. Your post will automatically be linked to mine leaving a list for all to peruse. I hope you will join us.**

Since it is Valentine's Week, I thought I'd highlight one of our favorite "Parent-Child Love" books. I asked Cavett to choose between three of them last night and he chose "You Are My I Love You" by Mary Ann K. Cusimano and Satomi Ichikawa. It is a beautifully sweet book written in verse spotlighting the give and take of the parent child relationship.

Let us share some of our favorite verses....

Mine: "I am your way home;

you are my new path.

I am your dry towel;

you are my wet bath."

Cavett: "I am your lullaby;

you are my peekaboo.

I am your good-night kiss;

you are my I love you."

We wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day!

We have that book and it is adorable. In fact, I went with the same theme this week and I forgot about that one! Oh, well, at least we didn't duplicate. And I did more than one book, so I'm sorry if that is "against the rules"! Have a great Valentine's Day with your loves!
