What made my day yesterday...

A going-into-fourth-grade boy's mom asked if we could recommend some books for them. He's into fantasy (specifically magic), but not into Harry Potter. I pulled a few books, including Which Witch? and The Secrets of Platform 13 by Eva Ibbotson.

Mom: Hmm... Which Witch?... We've read that one, right?

Boy: Yes, but I want to read it again!

And they promptly snatched up all the books I'd brought over to them (which also included Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher and So You Want to Be a Wizard?).

Made. My. Day.

I know it's been awhile, but I'll have a couple Days in the Life of a Children's Librarian for you next week. Stay tuned.
