The boys chatted up author Brandon Snider and decided they wanted to check out this new series. Looking forward to this fictionalized story based on Rube Goldberg about a kids who likes to invent and build wacky machines. #BooksByTheBanks #BoysReadToo #RaisingReaders #BlackBoyJoy

Chrissyreadit I love this!!! 3mo
MicheleinPhilly Do your boys like the game Mousetrap? I was completely OBSESSED with it as a kid. 3mo
Chelleo @MicheleinPhilly They never played it but I think it might make it under the tree this year 3mo
MicheleinPhilly 👍🏼 Excellent choice. I think they‘ll love it. 3mo

Miles Morales: Stranger Tides | Justin A. Reynolds
post image

So happy to see my guys enjoying books and reading and seeing themselves in those stories. We‘re big fans of the Miles Morales graphic novel and Jameson wouldn‘t let us leave #BooksByTheBanks until we bought the latest Miles book by and get it signed by Justin Reynolds was so cool and patient as he chatted with Jameson (and confirmed the correct spelling of his name). Jameson was so excited that he had the chance to meet him. #BoysReadToo

Bookgoil Huge fan of Reynolds!!! So glad y‘all got to meet him! 3mo
Chelleo @Aimeesue We met Justin Reynolds, not Jason, who I agree is amazing too! 3mo
Aimeesue @Chelleo This is what I get for typing too fast! My apologies to both Mr. Justin Reynolds and Mr. Jason Reynolds. I was actually thinking of Justin's books, but typed Jason. ❤️ (edited) 3mo
Chelleo @Aimeesue seriously, no worries because I thought Jason at first when I saw the program. 3mo
Aimeesue @Chelleo As you might imagine, people get my name wrong all the time, at least spelling-wise, and it's aggravating. The irony here is not lost on me. 😋 3mo
Gissy A beautiful experience to know different authors to share with them.📚❤️ 3mo

First Library Card. Kam filled out an application for his very own library card. I allowed him to sign up for a adult card under a teen profile so that he had full access to all library materials. We headed to the kids and teens area and he found several books to check out. He was also picked up his summer reading prize. He checked out his books using his new card. Big day! #boysreadtoo #blackboyjoy #kidsoflitsy

We usually forget or miss the bookmobile when it‘s in our neighborhood but we caught it this day and made the most of our visit by borrowing a stack of books and getting the boys signed up for the summer reading program. #boysreadtoo #blackboyjoy #raisingreaders

We picked up this book (along with a large stack of others) from our local library‘s bookmobile and J jumped right into it. After dinner tonight I picked it up myself and read it in one sitting. #boysreadtoo #raisingreaders #blackboyjoy

We cleared 2 boxes of books from their bookshelves and stocked 2 local Little Free Libraries. The one at the YMCA (the repurposed newspaper stand) was pretty bare so we donated 1/2 a box there and the other half at a spot not far away. We‘ll spread the rest of the books later in the week. #boysreadtoo #raisingreaders #blackboyjoy

Dragon A great idea ! 💚🐉 11mo
DinoMom We just did something similar. My son cleared out a bunch of books and he donated them to his school reading program. Good for your guys for donating their love of reading onwards! 11mo
Gissy So nice that he is participating in the process because he needs to decide, to choose which books will be donated. Was it hard for him? 11mo

Zoes_Human I love that someone reused a newspaper stand! 11mo
PaperbackPrincess19 I am loving how these free libraries are becoming more wide spread, I‘ve seen a few now and can‘t wait till more and more of these libraries show up. 11mo
Chelleo @DinoMom Back atcha! Always good to gift books forward no matter the venue 10mo
Chelleo @Gissy He did okay on the first pass. I put several back because they were autographed and moved them to my bookshelves. I also pulled a ton and although he grumbled at first he got over it quickly. ☺️ 10mo
Chelleo @Zoes_Human Isn‘t it the cutest thing? 10mo

One of my favorite book buddies joined me on a trip to our Friends of the Library Warehouse. He had a pretty good haul and we also picked up a couple of titles for little bro. #boysreadtoo #raisingreaders #blackboyjoy

@Sbonnette You hit the ground running by joining Litsy and the #BlitsySwap at the same time! So glad to have you here. J loved all the great books, super cute bookmark and of course, the candy! And since we can‘t just take a simple pic, you get the funny face too. Please tell N that, Yes, J does like Encanto (he asked in the card) 😚🥰 #boysreadtoo #raisingreaders #blackboyjoy

Gissy So funny! So good for them to participate in these swaps and that they love reading. Thanks to mama. It is so pleasant to see children reading! 11mo
BethM I can‘t wait until my munchkin is old enough to participate! 11mo
Sbonnette I‘m so glad he liked the book selection and N says he is glad J likes Encanto! 11mo
