I just love our Reading Grannies....

So, off we go in -13C weather to the Villa where the Reading Grannies live.  We were greeted at the door by three Grannies who were just so happy to see us.  We took off our toques, mitts, snowpants, coats and boots and made our way into our reading room.  We started the afternoon with some of our songs and the Grannies were quite impressed that we knew "1,2, Buckle My Shoe" and they remembered learning that when they were in school.  Each little one then grabbed a book and a Granny and off they went, like they had know each other for years and this was our first visit.  These Grannies were amazing, they treated our student's like pure gold.  After reading a few books, we were given juice and cookies and visited a while longer.  Sharing time like this together between generations of people is so important  and really a beautiful thing.  I love Reading Grannies and can't wait to go back next month.
