The above linked article is about a woman who is following her dreams and has a bookstore on wheels.
I know a few parents who might consider this free babysitting at the library. The kid is indoors, watched by reasonable adults, and being quiet. If he were untied with a book in hand, no one would ever be the wiser.
Several libraries are waiving overdue fees now, which I am torn about. Part of being able to use the library is the overdues fees. It’s a rite of passage for many kids.
I do like that the digital downloads are taken back on the due date, so they never have late fees. I was thrilled when I learned this. The only drawback is when you are ALMOST finished with that book, and the library takes it back. Back onto the hold list for you!
I have picked up a few children’s books from the library, since they showed up on lists. They are quicker reads, so the reviews will be flying. So far, I have enjoyed them. I am working on YA books, too. I may have to up my reading challenge number, since the children’s books are going quickly.
I am reading them quickly to get the LGBT ones done for Pride Month.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I picked this up from the library after seeing it on a list of LGBT books for children. This is a cute story about the prince finding the right person to rule beside him. I loved that his parents let him find his person on his own, to make sure they were the right fit. Another great message for kids!
The article linked above tells some of the story of this book. It was checked out 80 years ago and found in an estate sale. I am glad it found its way back home. I hope it has a good story about where it has been. Unfortunately, we will probably never really know.
