"Going on an Expotition?" said Pooh eagerly. "I don't think I've ever been on one of those." "Where are we going to on this Expotition?"

Taking Time for a Book Break While Out & About:
ANY place is a great place to read! But there are certain locations that are extra special! Like many people, I always have something good to read in my purse or bag! Over the last couple of years, I have made it a point to take literacy-related pictures in front of, inside of, or somewhere near an interesting place. Some interesting places to read or be reminded of a particular book, poem, or character are; libraries, bookstores, tourist attractions, museums, different spots in nature, and any other nook or cranny that a reader finds appealing. Basically, ANYWHERE has the potential to be a great reading Expotition! Whenever and wherever I am, there's the opportunity for a literary adventure!
Whether it be in an ordinary location, like a doctor's office waiting room or in a fun and unique location, like that of a vacation spot, I feel that it is extremely important to share with children that reading a great book, magazine, comic book, or poem at any place and at at any time, is an adventure in and of itself!
Taking a Book Break on a front porch is a real treat!
What "Expotitions" have you been on lately? Where and when have you taken the time for a Book Break?
