My father was a writer and I am a writer. Writing and reading are in my blood. My grandchildren love to read and I am so glad because reading truly enriches your life. We have bookcases in almost every room of our house loaded with all kinds of books, paperbacks, hardcovers, board books, books for all ages and all purposes. Books can entertain or educate. And some books even travel.
One book in our house does that. It is a board book, shaped like a cat, with a springy tail topped with an orange pompom, and big googly eyes. We have had this book since the granddaughters were very young. In recent months it has mysteriously begun to travel. Instead of remaining in the bookcase in our family room it somehow manages to move about the house, finding its way to a new location every morning when we wake. It is always somewhere between the kitchen and our bedroom. It is usually in the pathway but sometimes is in our bedroom or even in the bathroom. Every morning it is in a new location and no one knows how it got there.
At first we found this a little creepy, spooky, eerie or just plain strange. Last night however the mystery was solved. While my husband was brushing his teeth, preparing to go to bed, he heard a noise outside the door. Curious, he opened the door and this is what he found. He took a picture so there would be evidence to back up his discovery.
If you have a family of readers don't be surprised if your books begin to travel. Reading is contagious as you can clearly see! Even our pets are hooked on reading.
