“Come with me,’ Mom says.
To the library. Books and summertime go together.”
― Lisa Schroeder, I Heart You, You Haunt Me
These words couldn’t be truer. Books and summertime fit together like peanut butter and apple butter. You thought I was going to say jelly, didn’t you? PB&J is good, but PB and apple butter are like a cool breeze and the warm summer sun shining down on you at the same time. Perfect.

Growing up summertime definitely meant more time to read for me. Outside, under a tree was where I preferred. On rainy days, I’d sit in our barn and read until the rain stopped. And then I’d find my tree and read some more.
I know later on down the road my children will choose whether or not reading is something they want to continue without me. For right now, though, I feel as a parent that I need to instill a healthy reading habit in them. And for right now, they don’t mind. As I have mentioned previously, they love to read. And that makes my heart happy.
