Hi, I'm a children's librarian in the northern suburbs. Love literature for the young (and old and inbetween). Love talking about books. Love learning about new books and hearing divergent opinions
Five Little Peppers and How They Grew; Swallows and Amazons; Nancy Drew and similar syndicated series; Winnie the Pooh...
Old children's books ... and a few current
It changes all the time because I have to read so many books for work...the author I consistently like best is Cynthia Rylant.
The Tucker Family ... cheap books that my mom found at the second hand store. A wonderfully normal family...so unlike my own wacky household!
Tell a Tale of the Tuckers. I read a lot of adult books as a young person, starting about age 9 or so, so my memories of childhood reading is pretty skewed!
This is a good group for those literature in a relaxed setting with a gathering of respectful and friendly folks.
