Library Visit and Reading: Durham County Library

33865960_437818900012543_7279957901588824064_nWhat a fantastic morning I had reading to the families at the Durham County Library​!! The room was packed and the energy level was high. My son tagged along and it was, well, interesting. 🙂

First of all, my son was tasked with carrying my water into the building. Which, he spilled everywhere. I just shrugged it off and said “TA-DA! It’s my opening trick for The Spill!” Check the “not feeling so famous” box please.

I set the table up with my books and assembled my banners (I have two this time!!) I started out by reading Time For Bed With Ford And Red, which is always a hit. Especially that darn elephant.

That was followed by songs and dancing and at the end, I read The Spill. This was my first time ever reading this book out loud to a crowd, and oh my gosh, it’s SO MUCH FUN to read. That was one of my goals when writing the book and I’m so pleased with how it turned out. Reading the dog spread was just too much. It was so exciting! And the “uh-oh” spread generated a roar of laughter.

Now, whilst reading this book, my son was jumping and dancing and repeating every word I was saying (zoom in on the photo and you will see him doing such things). I very quietly nudged him to stop with little success. After the third time, I had to stop reading the book to discipline him. I followed this with another shrug of the shoulders and a “Hey, I’m a mama too.”
