Tell us about your family; how did you hear about the PJ Library?
We have two daughters: Amelia (3 years old at the beginning of February), and Kenna (just over 5 months old). My sister has three older girls and she told me about PJ Library. Reading to our kids is really important to us, not just because it teaches, expands the mind, and nurtures the imagination, but it also provides quality time together. This is a wonderful program to be a part of.
Tell us about your experiences with PJ Library and how this program (books and events) have impacted your family.
Amelia loves opening up her PJ Library mail when it arrives; it's very exciting to get mail with her name on the envelope! The books are a fun way to talk about holidays and they convey values of kindness, love, and the closeness of family. We have gone to several events as well, our favourite being Sukkot at the corn maze!
What are your children's favorite PJ books?
Many of the books are well worn and have gone through phases of being read every night. Amelia's early favourites were the Passover books "Company's Coming" and "Find the Afikomen". She also enjoyed the Tu B'Shevat book "Dear Tree". But hands down her favourite is "Bear Feels Sick" which she pretty much has memorized!
What has been your child's favorite PJ Library program and why?
Amelia really enjoys Sukkot at the corn maze. It's a really fun venue with lots of room to run around and play, but also nice to have the BBQ area and fire pits where we can all sit together and enjoy the company of family and friends. The PJ Library picnic is another event we like to attend - lots of kids having fun and enjoying being outside!
Anything else you’d like us to know?
I love seeing our book collection grow, and participating in PJ Library events is not only fun but when we see Amelia's daycare friends and family and it makes me feel connected to the community.
