Read books!

10 Aug

Today I read to a group of toddlers — a younger crowd than I am used to.  One young man really stood out from the crowd, demanding before I even sat down that I “READ BOOKS!”  He kept up a steady stream of questions and commentary throughout the storytime, (mostly) politely waiting until I had finished reading the page before putting his two (or twelve, in his case) cents in.  When it was time for me to leave, his schoolmates got up to get covered in sunscreen and ready to go outside to play, but he planted himself face down on the carpet.  His teacher said he was sad that the books were over.  I invited him to give me a hug and told him I’d be back soon with more stories.  With a sad face, he came to me and gave me a little hug.

I love my job.
