Chapter Books {The Ordinary Moments}

Welcome back to another week of the Ordinary Moments. If you haven’t joined in before this is a weekly linky that launches every Sunday morning and is open until midnight on the following Saturday. It’s a linky that celebrates any ordinary moments in your life – or the not so ordinary some weeks too. Basically – anything goes. I’ll be sharing and commenting on the posts that are linked up during the week and there’s a badge at the bottom of the post if you’d like to add it to yours too.

LP has loved reading since she started school. As soon as she learnt the sounds that the letters made, the sounds that special friend pairs of letters made and then the words that they made when all put together – she was off. Reading was her thing and there was no stopping her.

She has come on leaps and bounds and now reads every morning when she wakes up, every night before bed and often at so many other points in between. She can’t get enough books and will almost inhale them, ploughing through them with such enthusiasm.

But, recently she has started reading books with chapters, opting to use her World Book Day voucher for a much older book and reading it over the course of that evening. Since then we have got her other books, all still with pictures and engaging writing – different fonts and littered around the pages – but ones that are longer than before, with chapters and page numbers.

The books she reads now have at least 70 pages. They’ll have quite in depth stories to them and she always can’t wait to see what happens to the characters at the end. I remember being just like this when I was younger, not being able to get enough of books and devouring them like nothing else.

LP is just like me when it comes to reading. A thirst for knowledge, a need to broaden her imagination and just a love of being in a completely different world. I love seeing her read, happily curled up on a chair with a good book and I remember myself as a child – and I see the adult in her too. I hope she carries on reading with such joy and passion for years to come.

    I love to see children curled up with a book. I was just the same as a child and I can see Alice following in my footsteps too.

    This is exactly what I want for my boys, books, books and more books. I was a total bookworm as a girl (actually I still am) and don’t think there are many better traits!

    My oldest loves to read too. He’s often found with a torch under his covers. I love nothing more than reading. It’s the greatest gift we can give x

    Lovely, there’s so many good books out there. That’s something I don’t think I did enough of when I was younger and I shall be trying to encourage it much more with my 2, happy reading.

    My children are the same and I hope they don’t change. I like a good book and need to make more time for reading myself. Definitely lovely to see young children taking an interest in reading.

    How lovely. I was exactly the same as a kid, the library was the best place for me! My nan used to take me to WHSmiths on a weekend so that I could choose a new book. It was our treat, and one I still remember now. Parker loves reading too, and I’m so keen to encourage that in the future. It’s so important. Happy Reading! xx

    I was exactly the same when I was younger. When I was pregnant with Alfie we asked for books instead of presents at my baby shower. It was the best decision we’ve made because he now loves books too! x
