I don't have any pictures for #ReadToAChild because my nieces and nephews prefer to have their grandma read to them (apparently they don't appreciate me reading every word on the page instead of just giving them the gist of the story). So for this one I had to use a picture I posted on here a few weeks ago. #BookLove17

Alfoster So adorable!😍 6y
josie281 This makes me laugh! God forbid you read ALL the words! 6y

I haven't read to anyone in ages. 😔

When I used to babysit my friends little girl, these were her favourites to read with me.

(I know these are late, but I am finishing this challenge! 😋)

Shoe-la-la! | Karen Beaumont, LeUyen Pham

My kiddo loves fancy things like that shoe book, but I think it perpetuates stereotypes :/ we read it last night. The horse book is pretty cute, though!

Joanne1 I have the same dilemma with my daughters - who also loved Shoe-la-la coincidently. 6y
night_shift @Joanne1 hah! Weird! But yeah, it's frustrating :( 6y
LibrarianRyan I know I have a closet full of very tall shoes, but I agree about the shoe book. Not my fav Beaumont book. I prefers the stretfied books. Much better messages (and yes, it's the book from you've got mail..) 6y

Day 13 of #booklove17 #sharethelove #readtoachild

Some nights, he's my super-sweet, cuddly little guy that hugs me when I tear up at the end of this book.

Nights like tonight, he makes up his own (not so sweet) stories for each page, giggles when I get emotional, and says 'Ok let's read Batman now.' 😂

My baby is 5 1/2, and his reading choices are evolving. 😥😃❤️

Librariana Aawww! What a sweetie 😊💖 6y
Lmstraubie What a precious little soul!! That book is so full of love & tenderness. I gave it to my son this past year for his 18th birthday. It was a bitter sweet moment. 6y
saresmoore Oof. Straight to the the heart! What a cutie pie! 6y

The picture is from The Wacky Adventures of Weird Beard the Pirate by Edward Teach, which I received via Kickstarter a bit ago. It's "about a surly pirate who was cursed - or some would say blessed - with a magical shape-shifting beard. During his adventures he comes across all different kinds of folks and creatures. By the end of the day somebody learns a lesson, but it usually isn‘t Weird Beard." Funky! #sharethelove #readtoachild #BookLove17

LibrarianRyan That looks fun. 6y
readinginthedark @LibrarianRyan It is! Weird Beard is not necessarily a good role model, but he does help out people who aren't usually appreciated, so that's something. Also, a few of the rhymes don't really work and that bugged me, but my son didn't mind, so whatever. Self-published, but here's the Amazon link if you want to know more about it: https://www.amazon.com/Wacky-Adventures-Weird-Edward-2016-08-02/dp/B01K3LQ87O 6y

I love today's prompt because I don't think a parent has a more important role in forming a little human than reading to them. My kids have gone from our #readtoachild (Winnie's) to reading massive tomes on their own (Blood of Olympus). #booklove17
