Tree Fort Reading Club

As summer draws near I think of of my grade school days of hanging out at the pool and camping with my family (both of which I still love to do), but another aspect of the season that I loved was the summer reading program at our local library. Read so many hours and you get a little prize pack and certificate (can't really remember what the prizes were?), but I as always so excited to start logging my hours.

Reading is certainly a pretty common theme in my work these days, rabbit reading in a hammock or badger curled up with a good book. I love how reading can reveal wonderful adventures and worlds (currently reading The Wheel of Time series by Jordan), same goes with a favorite movie (finally watched the newest production of Adventures of Tin Tin and LOVED IT.) or video game (currently loving Xenoblade Chronicles).

This is too cute. I love the limited color palette. Such a sweet little scene. I want a cozy little reading tent!
