Why Children's Librarians Have the Most Fun

Angela Reynolds posted an amusing truth about children's librarians' desks over at the ALSC blog. In our office I'm definitely the one with the most toys laying about. Puppets above my desk, stuffed animals on my desk, flannel boards in my desk . . .

But my desk isn't what makes all the little kids wander into our office. We tend to leave the door open due to temperature inequities and at least once a day little feet come pattering into the room, making a bee line for the wall of puppets. If a three year old thinks our office is a fun place to be, how could we possibly not?

I just stumbled into your blog...and thought I would say hello. My father was a children's librarian - and he just loved finding THAT book that would spark a child into a love of reading. We are a family of readers so my girls just seem to come by it naturally. I am a big fan of Lois Lowry...so I'll have to check for her latest.

Kat, I love that feeling of matching the right book to the right child. Since posting my blurb on The Willoughbys I've heard mixed reviews, but I stand by my comments.
