Summer – A Perfect Time for Reading

LibraryThe lazy days of summer are a perfect time to read to and with your cubs.  Going to your public library for books is a great place to start.  Jan Berenstain’s note (below) shows how much the public library inspired her …

I joined the Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, public library when I was ten.  I remember taking out A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson, illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith.  It not only opened my eyes to the fun of writing in rhyme, it inspired me to take up drawing and painting.  I’m now 80+ and I still love writing epigrams for and creating illustrations for the Berenstain Bears books.  I say – go to the library for inspiration!
