Off the Shelves, Week 2

The need for the library is only growing, at least here in Indianapolis, where rain is making all of our gardens grow and flourish to a degree none of us will ever get to enjoy, as we will all be locked up in an institution after our constantly fighting children cause us to snap. 

What?  I’m fine.  Really.

Really.

Um…let’s look at some books, shall we?

  
This first one is for the littles among us.  I absolutely love books with imaginative stories told mostly in pictures.  Before learning how to read, all three of my kids loved to flip through books on their own and “read” the story they saw in the pictures.  This book would be ideal for that.

   
 As you can see, there are some words, but there are many pages without any words at all, and it’s such a lovely simple little imaginative story.  Super fun.

And for the slightly older among us, a little spin on the fairytales.

  
This whole story is told back in forth in letters from various fairy tale characters.

  
I love it when someone comes up with a creative new format.  This is fun conceptually, fun visually, and it weaves a new story across several fairytales.  What could be better?

Except sun, I mean.  

I’m happy to report that the forecast says today will be sunny!  So we’re putting books aside and going swimming while we can.  

We’ll be back at the library tomorrow during the next round of thunderstorms, though, so I’m sure I’ll have a fresh new crop of fun finds for you  next week.

Assuming I’m still sane, that is.
