16 Things Little Bookworms Will Ignore To Finish A Great Read

Jill Greuel-Sanders

August 9th is National Book Lovers Day. Naturally, our celebration includes the littlest literati.

We asked the HuffPost Parents Facebook community to show us their kids reading beloved books. All of the photos we received make one thing clear: a child in the midst of a great read will remain reading -- no matter where in the world she or he is. Here are a smattering of things kids are perfectly happy to give up for a good tale:

  • 1 The escalator.
    Carolina Penaranda_Cervantes
  • 2 Swings.
    Brooke Haley Kimball
  • 3 The potty.
    Stevielyn Winfield
