I realised it is time for us to reset and list down the books in our library when I bought the same picture dictionary for the second time. Now we have one with hard cover and one with paper back. And four versions of Cindrella. Yesterday also I bought one ( again ) thinking I don’t have one with good pictures and writing. And there are some other books also which I don’t remember.
Kids would have known it but now some times I go alone so that I can take my own time.
To decide is easy , but to work it out is not . But when I suggested it, kids took the whole thing away from me and worked it out on their own.
I helped them to sort the books and we decided to give alphabets ( is my number phobia showing ? ) to every category .
I showed them how to list down the names of books under each category and they took it from there.
They stuck the stickers and wrote the categories.
Arranged it according to the categories.
Found out every book in the house ….
What seemed to me as a dreadful, tedious and boring job was completed with so much joy, planning, sharing, and confidence.
And our library couldn’t have been more organised!
