Matt, Becca, Lily (4), and Jacob (2) have been members of PJ Library in Howard County for many years. They are thrilled to share their love of PJ Library with our community. Becca is also on our PJ Library Parent Committee.
How did you hear about PJ Library? I’m not sure when we first heard about PJ Library, but we signed up when our daughter was a baby and have been enjoying the books ever since.
What is your family’s favorite PJ Library selection? Lily’s favorite PJ Library book always seems to be the most recent book. Every time we receive a new one, it becomes her new favorite! Jake loves any and all Shabbat books.
How has PJ Library influenced your family’s Jewish living and decisions? We like to get ready for upcoming holidays by reading PJ Library books about that holiday. Our kids love to read books that connect to the ways our family celebrates holidays. They get excited when the kids in a book do something “just like us."
What is/was your favorite PJ Library program? Our favorite PJ Library program is Shabbat Tots. We’ve been going to Shabbat Tots for four years since Lily was a baby. My kids and I have made friends and it’s helped all of us connect with Jewish life in Howard County. Jake has been asking all summer if it’s time for Shabbat Tots!
What is your bedtime routine with your little ones? The kids take baths and brush their teeth. We snuggle up with a few books each. They get to choose their own books and we read together before they go to sleep.
