Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! Sorry posts have been a little sporadic. That happens from time to time, especially around the holidays, but please keep coming back.
I thought that I would pass on a link to this post from the PBS kid lit blog Booklights: Wish Lists. Susan has pulled together a great “list of book lists” with tons of helpful suggestions for books for kids of all ages.
And can I mention what an incredibly wonderful, absolutely fantastic place my public library is? As I was going through these lists, I kept bouncing over to my library’s catalog and placing all kinds of interesting books on hold. And when they reopen after the holiday, I will be able to go in and check them out…for free! Really, how neat is that? I think it can be easy to take the library for granted sometimes, but if you think about it, it really is such a neat concept.
Of course I always wind up finding books that I really, really…yes, really, need to own. My bookshelves attest to that. But I would never be able to afford to buy all the books that I want to read, so for the library, I am eternally thankful.
