Living Arrows 9/1/17

I love the idea of this linky from one of my favourite blogs What the redhead said. It's all about celebrating  childhood. I'm already discovering that they grow up far too fast so it's something I'm going to make an effort to join in with each week.

The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and  the idea is that every Monday we share a moment from our week.

So here goes...

My favourite picture from this week was taken at the library. We're lucky to have a wonderful library just across the road and it's one of Monkey's favourite places to visit. I love that she loves reading so much and I hope it's something that she'll continue to enjoy as she gets older.

The thing I like best you can't actually see in the picture. All Monkey wants in the world is to be big - and that includes reading. She's been nagging me to teach her to read for ages and has learnt a few sounds. She is super confident tough and believes she can read. She managed to get a gaggle of kids round her listening to her story.

  1. It's so lovely that she loves reading! My little boy likes stories but would prefer to watch tv! It's definitely a habit I'm trying to break! I think we need more trips to the library! x

  2. Aww bless her, it's a lovely habit to have

  3. So studious! That is great that she likes reading and her t-shirt is cool! #LivingArrows

  4. She sounds like a wonderful little girl - and she will be big in no time. I bet you want her to hold onto those moments of childhood forever! It's lovely that she enjoyed reading so much! x

  5. How lovely that she enjoys reading so much. We really should go to the library more often but our local one is being closed down soon :( #LivingArrows

  6. I keep following your blogs regularly. Glad to see that your little toddler is up for reading books and is enjoying in the new library. Kids must have habit of reading books and library gives that environment to children.
