Levi loves visiting the Omaha Public Library. He excitedly runs through the children’s section, pulling books off the shelves, while I trail behind picking up the mess. (Obviously we have not yet mastered library etiquette, and “use your inside voice” means little to nothing to Levi at the moment.)
Previously, we only checked out board books because I didn’t want Levi to tear the paper pages of books that didn’t belong to him. But now that he’s slightly more trustworthy — and also willing to sit and listen to a longer story — I feel more comfortable borrowing hardcovers.
I usually pick out a handful of books based on cover art or topic. (Yes, I totally judge a book by its cover. Especially picture books!) Sometimes Levi will request a choo-choo or a truck book, and I’ll dig through the stacks until I find something with eye-catching images and a reasonable amount of words on each page.
