monday missions :: get the biggest library book

Monday Missions: a simple idea to add a little magic to your week.

This week's mission is so simple - but I bet it will surprise you. 

1. Go to the library and find the biggest book you can. 

2. Look through it. 

3. Take a picture of your child with the book.

Our library has a shelf full of the biggest, most oversized books you can imagine! So big, you can hardly lift them! And you know if a book is that big, the subject matter must be impressive. 

Turn it into a quest, a treasure hunt. I can assure you that what ever books you find, they will be intriguing. 

We spent a rainy evening captivated by this Circus book, wondering about the freaks and the multi generational families and life on the road. But we could have just as easily looked at a huge architecture book, or one on biodiversity or space. They are all that good.

If you do this mission - please share! I would love to know what BIG book you found.


  1. Fun! We'll try to do this next time we visit the library :)

  2. This is a wonderful post, thank you! As a mom and a staff member of a library, it inspires me in two different ways!


Please leave a comment! I love to hear from you!
