Make Time for Story Time

We have story time every night before bed–that’s when Chris always reads a book to Hannah Rose.  But, there are sooo many good books out there that story time only at bedtime just isn’t enough.  I’m trying to read more with Hannah Rose during the day, but some days we’re just so busy.  Where do I find the time???

So I start thinking….(watch out, grab your fire extinguishers, and the like!)

Hannah Rose and I have been doing a lot of driving-and we’ll be doing a lot more driving in the near future. (An hour to her school, an hour home–or worse with accidents, snow storms, etc.) We don’t have a DVD system for the car, nor do we want one.

Then the thought occured to me: Audio books!!! I’ll enjoy them–and she’ll get introduced to a lot of great literature that way. It’s something to keep from total boredom in the car–for both of us, and it’s time well spent. I’m a huge bookworm, and there are so many books I want to introduce to her!!!

This last week we started with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. (She’s already a Harry Potter fan because of all my Harry Potter stuff. hehehe) Being only 5–we’re not going to introduce her to all the books yet, and she has yet to see any of the movies.

We picked up a few other audio books this weekend. Anne of Green Gables, A Wrinkle in Time, and the Chronicles of Narnia. That should keep us occupied for a few days! Once we’re done with Harry Potter, that is!  (Which should be soon, we’re on disc 5 and book one only has 7 discs if I’m not mistaken!)

I’m very excited about this. She’s really enjoying it too. Chris and I hope she develops a true love of books like we both have.
