Dog Days of Summer

From a post on Reading Rockets:  “Have you ever wondered why hot summer days are called ‘dog days?’ The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius — the brightest star in the night sky (also called the Dog Star) — was the cause of hot weather. Dogs know what to do when the temperature rises — curl up in a shady spot. And what’s better for kids [and everyone else] on a hot day than to curl up with a cool book?” 

Hope you’re enjoying your summer and reading too….
