Hot Men of Children's Literature, Part 36 in a Series
You guys have been so good lately. You deserve a new hot man to feast your hungry eyes upon.
So, funny story. As a children's librarian, my job is to fulfill a host of different requirements. Your average kidlit librarian needs to provide customer service, maintain assigned jobs (i.e. organizing the non-print and the paperbacks, oddly enough), work a Reference Desk with aplomb, and (here's the biggie) work with classes. That means giving kids a tour of the library alongside some basic orientation. And orientation sometimes works so much better when you've some good picture books to read aloud to the young 'uns. I used to be a fan of D.W.'s Library Card since it had that irresistible Arthurian lure (by way of Marc Brown) to it. As time went by, however, I found that there was a better book out there to suit my needs. Beverly Billingsly Borrows a Book. Oh, it's great. It addresses fears, and concerns, and contains a whole host of information. I've always been vaguely aware that there's a whole Beverly Billingsly series out there, but it never occurred to me to check out the relative hotness of the author/illustrator.
More fool I, it seems.
And so I present unto you the enormously hoo-haa...
No blog. No upcoming appearances. Just a woefully out-of-date website. Still, I'll forgive a lot if a fellow's as hip as this.
