This week the little pumpkin and I joined the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s summer reading program. Any one, any age can join the summer reading program, which I love. The program began on June 7 and ends August 2. You can register at any branch or online. The program is simple – all you have to do is keep track of how much you read.

At our local branch of the library, there are two long shelves that are usually filled with board books (we only read board books because someone has a tendency to tear the pages of regular books – I won’t name names here). Since the summer reading program began, the two shelves are only about a quarter filled. Which means Columbus is reading this summer! 

This got me thinking about pumpkin’s favorite books…because I was wondering, can I count the same book more than once for the contest since she makes me read them ten times a day? (I decided to only count each book once, regardless of how many times I have read it that day.) Here is a list of some of her current favorites:

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Amazing Baby: Night-Night, Baby! by A. Wood 
Time for Bed by Mem Fox and Jane Dyer
Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann 
That’s Not My Puppy: Its Coat Is Too Hairy by Fiona Watt and Rachel Wells
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss and Theodor Seuss Geisel 
The Going to Bed Book and Barnyard Dance by Sandra Boynton 
Ten Little Ladybugs by Melanie Gerth and Laura Huliska-Beith 
You’re My Little Love Bug by Heidi R. Weimer 

What is your little one’s favorite book?
