Last week, we told you about a resource for some great picture books for children: Children’s book author Susanna Hill’s blog featuring her Perfect Picture Book Friday series. I looked for last week’s featured book, The Monster Returns, in the Verona Public Library and while it was not part of the inventory, Cheryl Ashley, the children’s librarian, is getting it for me through inter-library loan.
This week, Hill’s choice for a book is The Top Job. What does she like about the book? Aside from being well set up, it’s factual and provides a setting for kids to learn about all kinds of different jobs and muse about what to be when they grow up.
After reading through last week’s submissions on Hill’s site, I made my own list of books to look for in the Verona library, which includes Children Make Terrible Pets, Otis, Better than You, Don’t Feed the Monster on Tuesdays, and The Legend of the Golden Snail. I searched The Verona Public Library database and The Legend of the Golden Snail is in the library as well as some of the other entries from last week: I Want my Hat Back, Squids Will be Squids, Extra Yarn, and Bad Kitty.
