Well summer is coming to an end and what a summer we have had! They say is has been the hottest summer on record. I know I have spent a lot of time swimming with my Riverbank friends in the river. But because of the heat I also spent a lot of time in my cave this summer. This was a great opportunity to reorganize my collection of children's books that I have collected for many years. Children's books are very special - especially the wonderful old fairy tales. I reread many of them and realized once again why it is important to read them to our children. Fairy tales offer greater lessons about the inner problems of human beings, and the right solutions to predicaments, than any other type of story within a child's range of comprehension. Think of some of your favourite fairy tales and what lessons you learned. Please blog me and we can exchange some ideas. My library is all organized and ready to share with you.
