Who doesn’t love a good book? #144

Today I covered the summer reading program kickoff party at the Emporia Public Library.  There were TONS of kids there, all excited about the  program.  They had a bat scavenger hunt, popcorn, crafts, paper airplane competitions…it was a ton of fun (and a little crazy). However, amid the craziness, I stumbled upon a little girl with her babysitter who had just happened to come to the library to practice reading that day. Even though there was a ton of activity happening around her, the little girl was totally focused on the book and excited to read what was on the page.  Yep…that pretty much sums up my love for reading. I can be in a room with tons of stuff going on, but if the book is good, it’s like I’m all alone.
