(Reading Tip #25: Do a reading countdown or advent together-- for instance, a birthday countdown on Christmas advent. (i.e. 12 days of Christmas or 7 Days ((1 week)) until your birthday.)
Place library books & DVD's on hold or request them online ahead of time.
So when you go to the library, especially with littles in tow, it's easier to check out & less of a hassle for you.
Make text-world connections while reading with your young ones. For example, after my son & I read several fall & autumn books about pumpkin, including Pumpkin Soup, my son & I then made a pumpkin dump cake. Yum!)
