From the Library

I live in Philadelphia, a city which, despite what you may have heard, still has some libraries. I frequent my local branch mostly for picture books.

I tend to read as many as I can by one author as the library can afford, hoping to get a sense of their work beyond what I may have read growing up.

This past week I got 13 picture books. I have decided to list them here:

The plant sitter by Gene Zion
I like to be little by Charlotte Zolotow
Something is going to happen by Charlotte Zolotow
Sleepy Book by Charlotte Zolotow
Say it! by Charlotte Zolotow
Harry, the dirt dog by Gene Zion
The tenth good thing about Barney by Judith Viorst
I’ll fix Anthony by Judith Viorst
Earrings by Judith Viorst
Trashy Town by Andrea Zimmerman
Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day by J. Viorst
Alexander who’s not (Do you hear me? I mean it!) moving by J. Viorst
LMNO peas by Keith Baker

This is the park adjacent to my library: Rittenhouse Park
