Miss LoLisa’s Reading Rug

There is something so cozy and inviting about a Reading Rug. Children can wiggle and slouch, they can sit up or curl up with the dog. Perhaps even the family cat will feel like joining the rug. All the children need to do is listen to the story. For some children, stories entertain them, make them laugh, or have other feelings. A story could teach what empathy feels like. That combination of understanding and compassion that a book can share without even explaining the meaning of the empathy they may be feeling.

For other children, the reading rug is like a magic carpet, carrying them away to another place, even if it is just for a few moments. Perhaps the rug is the peaceful place they need for a few minutes in their hectic lives.

I had the opportunity to sit in the chair by the reading rug at home, in libraries, and in Miss Bonney’s kindergarten class. (I even repaired Miss Bonney’s rug a time or two!) I have always loved a reading rug, and that is why I wanted one in my logo, with a group of children and, of course, a corgi.

Your reading does not have to be on a rug. It can be in a chair, in the car, on a plane, or under an umbrella in the rain. It can be while tucking in a little one at night or when the power is out with a flashlight. Read on a blanket in the park, or on Facetime to your nieces, nephews, and grands in Lincoln Park.

Look in my video section for my friends at Draw & Care in Ukraine drawing my Reading Rug! Enjoy!
