Reading Snapshots: North Carolina Edition

Happy Friday to everyone not just at Gracepoint Berkeley church but across all our Gracepoint Ministries! Can you believe it’s almost May?! Today I bring you a short but sweet Reading Snapshots post from Gracepoint North Carolina.


Granted they are looking at photo albums, but you see the early literacy practices they are engaging in? Given they’re from America, they are correctly going from left to right in the books as they “read” each photo. And while I wasn’t there, I heard they were engaging in the social aspect of reading as well, showing and telling each other about the interesting and sometimes shocking things they saw, such as one’s parents’ wedding photo! 🙂

What a delightful sight to behold in an age where the kids their age I usually see are swiping screens. Remember, I always welcome your reading snapshots, since they’re crowd favorites!

Reading in Seattle

A couple weeks ago, Andrea and Allison visited their cousins and uncle and aunt (Pastor Andy & Amy) at Gracepoint Seattle church. They were excited to take up a bunch of books for the boys up there, so they could have their own little Bibliopolis there. The reading snapshot I have from that trip is of Andrea reading to Eric, actually. Maybe Timmy and Daniel were at school. 🙂

She’s a reading buddy wherever she goes. An awesome reading buddy always wears shin ramen (신라면) socks!

And just this past weekend, a bunch of aunties from the very auntied-class of 2010 from Gracepoint Berkeley church, Austin church, Minneapolis church, and LA church visited, and they took a special delivery from Bibliopolis. Yes, books!

books are awesome presents

Pastor Andy & Amy, those books are for the boys! Looks like Stephen’s got his eye on that book too!

book mail is the best happy mail

Book mail is the best happy mail. Books for everyone, though Eric seems to be eyeing Timmy’s big stack there. Don’t worry, Eric, I’m sure he’ll share with you once you’re a bit older! (Psst…guys, the books are upside down.) 🙂

What was the best book you ever received as a present?*

*My friend Mary, I know what your answer is. Or what it should be! 🙂
