For the Non-Vegetarian Abecedarians Amongst Us
After a while every children's librarian suffers the effects of Alphabet Book Overdose. We here at the Donnell Central Children's Room have found that it's easy to deflect this sometimes fatal disease by restricting all alphabet titles to a single location in the library, thereby reducing their lethal propensities. Oh, one seems fine. But before you know it you read another... and another... and another ... Then the next thing you know you're flat on your back in an unfamiliar E.R. while the doctor attempts to bring you back to reality by asking how many fingers she's holding up (counting books have been found to significantly reduce the more dangerous properties of alphabet titles, it seems).
Now, however, there's a whole new game in town. Why not avoid books altogether and go the packaged meat route? Yum. Fry me up a load of Ms and Qs when you get a chance.
