red letter day

Thank you to all the adults who made it to my re-gifting party.  Knowing their generosity would get into  the hands of those who would benefit and cherish the gift of a book, Oh the power of words and languages. It the previous post I outed  my intentions.  It was better than expected.   I was a bit worried as adults started to show up barring gifts, however no kids but soon  they followed   also.  I had gone to almost all the homes,  I knew had children and handed  them invitations to my ice cream social, and gave out more invites to my Royal Poinciana neighbors who identified the kids  on their block.  Little did the kids  know that they would also be the recipient of something they could enjoy, a gift of a new book with their name inscribed.     THANK YOU  Elise,  Peter,  Sarah,, BJHawk,  Richard, Bob L, Tammy,  Michelle, Ramsey, Susan + Ozzie, Steffanie,  Tina, Ted,  Lisa,  Mike, Charka, Judy for your time, your assistance and especially you  Claudia  and Charlotte who read to the kids and translated.

view from the East other side is different.

My Library will primarily be for children’s books and was always intended to be. The  construction a bit taller in Neo Classical style, never got the Corinthian columns but there are two sides front and back to  yet be embellish when the mood strikes.  The interior was lined with calligraphy practice sheets.  (Ted’s LFL  is lined with nautical  book pages)

Our consummate reader Charlotte

choice of pink lemonade or ice cream and with choice of sprinkles

age appropriate selection were in 5 different bags all gift wrapped.

I’m delighted to report it is being used..  Each day  will I  fill with more books no longer brand new but what a great collection I’ve amassed over the past two years.  I was fortunate to get the books from our City Manager thinking i would have the library up and running at that time.  However now they are in my LFL  and they are exquisite set of children?s books the kind they no longer make. Thank you for that treasure throve

oh yeah, keeper, was able to keep my used copy of “Where the Wild Things Are
