This post is part of the James&Jax.com Weekend Reading BlogHop. Check out what we are reading/reading to our kids.
On Friday, I took the boys to the library to return and pick up books.
We usually head straight back to the children’s section and I let Jake pick out 5 books and then 2 movies. Usually that means Jake partially pulls out a book and I read the title to him. It is hit and miss whether it is an age appropriate book he will enjoy. I generally will pull out one book that he will like. This week it was a Curious George book which is always a winner.
One of the books Jake picked out was Saying Goodbye to Lulu by Corinne Demas. I should have immediately known what it was about. No, I just started reading it to him. Spoiler: It is about a sick old dog that dies and a little girl has to say goodbye.
It is a great book to help a child deal with the grief of loosing a pet, it isn’t exactly what I would have chosen for a bedtime book. I tried to leave it out of the books I grabbed for bedtime, but then was asked where the doggie book was.
Curious George, Dr. Seuss, Goodnight Moon, and a book about a dead dog. Can’t believe he didn’t wake up with nightmares!
