As a reader I am always looking for way to introduce new concepts thoughts and ideas to myself and my son via education. If I control (as best I can) the information he is taking in, the better he will come out! My attempt to do so just happened to be the creation of CIRIE. CIRIE is not only the way I pick out library books for my son but it also offers us more interaction than simply sitting down and reading books. Check it out below!
There are 5 days in the workweek and my local library maximizes at a 5-book limit. As a busy mom this works perfect for me and assisted in my construction of CIRIE. One book a day, helps your imagination stay! Five books a week, keeps you operating at your PEAK!
Each library visit I strive to check out one book from each of the following categories:
C-Crafty (Something that involves hands on activities for the family)
I – Imagination (Something that paints vivid mental pictures)
R- Relatable (Melanated People)
I-Interest (Trains, basketball, magic, etc.)
E-Education (e.g. History, Science, Animals)
(I also use CIRIE when picking out my own books and building our at home library)
I have found that this not only helps my son to understand but me as well. The books we get from the library each week, assist in his teaching, creates more family interaction time, and opens up portals of communication between my husband, my son, and myself.

Peace, Love, and Eternal Light
