We had the book fair at school last week. I was really excited for the boys to pick out some new books. Some can get tiresome to read night after night, you know what I mean? I was anticipating getting some new books we could all enjoy together. Good stories. Funny stories. Beautiful illustrations.
It was a fail. I saw plenty of books I thought the kids would enjoy. “Deacon, how about this one?” “Finn, do you want a new Llama book?” My “new reader” suggestions to Logan were denied. He just wanted non-fiction books on snakes. Eew. Come on guys, Mommy wants good books too! I’m the one that has to read them after all.
Deacon’s purchases were two Lego Star Wars books. Seriously, these books are awful. I can’t stand them. He loves them. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t even get half of the puns in them. Finn wanted a book on panda bears. Not even a cute story with a panda, just a book about panda bears.
Their selections were not my idea of good night story reading. I think “Santa” is going to have to revamp the bookshelf this season. Seriously, how many times can I read Komodo vs. King Cobra…who will win? Those fangs give me nightmares.
