The More We Get Together the Happier We'll Be.

New friends: Piper & Daniel!

Recently, Piper heard that she had a "fan" in North Carolina.  And she was all ...wimper wimper, jump, jump, and kiss, kiss, kiss!  This is her way to let me know she's happy.  Honestly, we both love our fans but you don't see me wagging and jumping and wimpering! (fist bump here!)

While packing and planning my trip to visit my grandchildren in NC a request came from my daughter, "will you please bring Piper too?"  You can only imagine how excited Piper was to hear that she was coming along on the airplane to visit her family and meet her new "fan" friend.  Now she was all... "If you're happy and you know it wag your tail...stomp your feet, jump in the seat..." I think you get the picture.  Oh my!

 Piper is an excellent traveler.  She loves airplane rides as long as she gets the window seat!  She'll always fall asleep on a train.  She rides in the car everyday with me.  Like I said, excellent traveler.  And a very speedy packer!  Everything in the top picture travels with us: two books, one Twinkle fairy and an orange ball.  Piper is ready to roll all the time!

Here's Twinkle up close!
 We always sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with her.

While staying in North Carolina, Daniel and his Dad came across the Friendship bridge  (Yes,  It's a real, don't you want to live in NC?)  I know... it sounds like it's right out of a story book.  Anyway they came across the bridge to meet Piper.  Alison, Cole and Brie were there to introduce us.   Piper was very gentle...and so was Daniel and so was Daniel's daddy.  We all sang "Where is Piper?" and she played her tricks and games to the delight of the children.  

Of course Twinkle made an appearance and we sang for her.  We shared both books - David A Carter's If You're Happy and You Know It as well as A.Delaney's The Gunnywolf.  We love reading together.  Piper got a little silly after that.  She threw her ball around and found a stinky, smelly sock *yuck* which made everyone laugh.

Daniel went home for a nap after he patted Piper goodbye.  Sooo sweet.   Daniel and his Dad planned to be up late for fireworks.  Piper doesn't like fireworks, too loud for her. 

This is what Daniel and his Daddy look like.

We all know that Piper loves the library, here are some suggestions for picture books to find in your library and read together.  We say, "Read with a friend and the fun never ends".  Try these titles:

                           Digger Man by Andrea Zimmerman
                            Maisy Goes to the Museum by Lucy Cousins
                            Beetle Bop by Denise Fleming
                            In the Small Small Pond by Denise Fleming

                            This is My Hair by Todd Parr
                            Gossie & Friends by Olivier Dunrea

P.S. (Piper Script): Here's a song for all my it and sing along!  Thinking about my new friend Daniel and his mom and dad and brother and sisters.  xo 

Thanks for visiting Piper Loves the Library.  She loves comments too!
