Staff Picks: Wild Things, the Joy of Reading Children's Literature as an Adult
Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.
We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.
Wild Things : The Joy of Reading Children's Literature as an Adult by Bruce Handy
Wild Things : The Joy of Reading Children's Literature as an Adult authored by Bruce Handy was not exactly what I was expecting. It was a revisiting of some classics of childhood reading, from fairy tales to The Cat in the Hat. Mr. Handy helps us to understand how some of the creative and witty authors and illustrators created their masterpieces.
It is a little bit biographical, a little bit educational, a little bit funny but altogether entertaining.
If Wild Things interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
