She's a Bookworm, On Printed Pages She Rides...


Dana over at "Principled Discovery" wants to know what "crimes" homeschoolers would be "wanted" for.

My oldest has been a bookworm since she was a baby. The above picture was taken when she was around 1 1/2. She went from Bob books to The Chronicles of Narnia in less than 18 months' time, which is I've heard is not all that unusual for homeschoolers but I certainly was still surprised by it. I now have 4 different accounts at the library (my personal, my teacher's, hers, and her little brother's) because we kept hitting the maximum number of items allowed!

is an absolutely adorable picture! And my daughter went from struggling through readers to the Misty of Chincoteague books in less than a semester. It does make your head spin when they put their mind to learning something.

So cute! I love the title "On Printed Pages She Rides."

I used this idea, too, but mine is about my husband. He is most definitely not a bookworm. Unless you count taking a few bites per book. :)

Peace to you,

Oh, a teacher's account? I'll have to look into that at my library! You must surely have one for your DH that you use as well?

I remember taking in my toddler when he was three weeks old so I could have access to another set of holds. We don't have a limit on check-outs; I know I've had over 30 books checked out on a single card at times. But they reduced the holds from 20 to 10 per account and that really hurt me!

My DH can be a bit on the anal side at times and one of his pet peeves is not wanting other family members to check out materials on his library account. Considering the multitude of spousal flaws possible, this particular one I can live with! ;-)

For the teacher's account, all I had to show was a copy of my membership card to a homeschooling organization to prove that I was a home educator. I believe they also accept a copy of a PSA but I haven't done one of those yet.

Your library has a limit? No fair! They should just buy more books....

Thanks for commenting about preschool at my blog. I have another question for you or any other young moms in response to your comment: it's at:
