I just wanted to share a few quotes from actual kids I talked to during my Summer Reading school visit today:
1) "We need to read over the summer to get smarter and learn more things so we can grow up and write books." (When I asked why it was important to read over the summer.)
2) "Can I live at your library?" It sounds fun." (When I talked about library programs.)
3) And lastly, when I asked the kids if they were able to read for 20 minutes, one kid was like, "Psht, I can read for 20 HOURS." Oh yeah? PROVE IT, BIG SHOT.
Happy Summer Reading, children's librarians. God help us all.
