We decided to drive over to the Decatur Book Festival this afternoon. It covered several blocks of downtown Decatur.
No book festival would be complete without books! This cute little girl had just bought a book, sat down on the curb and started to read!
As a child I remember my mother taking me and my brother to the Decatur Public Library. I remember parts of the interior and walls and walls filled with books. Our special treat after we picked out our books would be to play on the giant magnolia trees out front.
They are just as I remembered them! The branches were huge and reaching down to the ground just waiting for a little boy or girl to climb on them. Brings back great memories.
We saw several authors, one was on the Children's Stage singing a book and next to him was an artist painting pictures that are in the book. All of the kids in the audience were singing along and looking at their books.
These little girls were reading their new books in front of the main stage where a concert was going on behind them. I think this is my favorite photo!
or laying on your tummy! It was a great festival. Look for it next Labor Day weekend. It is worth the drive to Decatur.
