Ms. Davidov Needs to Share

It was an epic weekend in many ways but mostly because I visited one of my favorite libraries in the world: The New York Public Library Main Branch. There, I got to experience 100 years children’s literature in America when I saw the last day of the exhibit, “The ABC of It”. It was amazing! There was a giant wild thing and much rumpus to be had. I saw the original stuffed animals that inspired A.A. Milne’s The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Did you know that Lewis Carroll wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for a little girl named Alice Liddell? She liked his stories so much he wrote them especially for her. One of the biggest rooms of the exhibit actually featured Dana’s very own Margaret Wise Brown and her seminal work, Goodnight Moon. What a weekend!

Our Last Storytime… of the Year

These two young readers should inspire you during this time of intense study. Just thinking of babies reading Goodnight Moon should inspire the avid reader in all of us. Happy finals and remember to appreciate the awwww worthy moments in the library.
