Day 44 (Week 7, Day 2) - Monday 13th February 2017
I love doing the Picture Book Challenge. We have such a nice time as a family reading together, and we've discovered so many fantastic books, some of which I hope people have gone out and reserved or bought having seen on here.
I'm not going to lie and say that the Challenge has gone smoothly at every turn, however, There's been plenty of illness, children asleep in the car before we can read at home, and sometimes they're simply so tired that they just don't WANT to read - and that's absolutely fine! Not great when we need to get so many books read, of course, but in the grand scheme of things it's no problem at all to want to have a night off from reading. We want this Challenge to stay fun, after all, and not something that's being forced upon the kids so it becomes something to dread.
With that in mind, it was quite obvious tonight that it just wasn't the right evening for reading, so we're leaving tonight as a nil return, and looking forward to tomorrow night instead!
