It’s official! Noelle visited the public library for the first time today!
I had set myself out to find her some touch and feel books because she really likes those at home.
However, I found that the books at the library are more for reading (duh!) instead of just pictures with minimal words.
Noelle was really not into sitting down or finding herself a book.
Instead she wanted to say hi to other kids (really really loudly..),
standing next to other kids who are reading and just be nosy,
pulling on some little girl’s balloon,
pointing at the fish tank and yell for mommy to come see the fish,
or just run around like it’s her own house (with no shoes on…)
The little time we spent sitting down, she could barely stay still.
I did borrow some books home, and I guess we’ll wait and see if she grows any interests with them.
It was a sea of books and really was not that easy to find exactly what I wanted.
I do hope, however, that it’ll get easier as we learn our ways around the place
and as her reading and concentration level goes up a notch.
