It’s the world, dear. Did you expect it to be small?
Smaller.

Today I learned that there are multiple different reading orders for The Chronicles of Narnia.  If you have copies with different publication dates, the numbers on the spine might even be jumbled.

The Snowy Day
by Ezra Jack Keats
This picture book is a true childhood classic. If only we could all throw on our red onesies and spend this snow day with Peter. Now that’s what I call a good time!

“And yet, by every criterion listed, children’s fiction is entirely capable of being great literature. Indeed, if you’re looking for writing that changes the reader and the world, there may be no better form….I’ve visited countless schools and seen for myself the life-changing power of children’s books. It’s impossible to overstate the transformative effects they can have upon individual readers – and collectively, across generations, upon the world.” Who says children’s books can’t be great literature?” (via schoollibraryjournal)

Brentwood Library, Tennessee

Amazing.

I MUST visit this place.

One of my libraries is taking on a building project.  I would like to put in a request for a tree in the kids’ room.
