Another book that I found at the New York City Public Library was this gem that is full of wonderful advice about what you should do this summer!
Have you seen this book? Do you remember “Little Golden Books”?
I remember collecting a wide variety of these when my son was little. They were a perfect length for bedtime reading and had such a nice “happily ever after” ending (or at least the ones I remember). These were constants on the shelves as I traded other books that I was using at school depending upon the season and the age.
I’m not saying that these are great literature and are worthy of “stickers” as we heard Jackie Woodson talk about at #TCRWP’s Reading Institute. But do check out the messages that I found in a very quick perusal of the book’s pages.
(And it’s very important to note that this page says 1959. I didn’t know that color TV had even been invented in 1959. Maybe color TVs just hadn’t made it to Iowa yet! History of color TV here at wikipedia.)
So if you turn off the TV, you should . . .
Clever, NO? Not convinced?
More wisdom . . .
or even . . .
What have you planned for your summer vacation?
Will you turn off TV?
Will you read a book?
Will you use your imagination?
Will you learn something new?
. . . a cute book that you will enjoy sharing!
