Library Loot!

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Marg and Eva that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

When you are a library employee, Library Loot, could be a daily post! I come home with an armful of books nearly every day after work. However, this week is the 1st week of vacation, so I'm at home with my children, resulting in quite a hefty library bag when we went this morning because I had things on HOLD to pick up.

Children's Picture Books:
Fanny and Annabelle, by Holly Hobbie
Princess Party by Joy Allen
Go-Go Gorillas by Julia Durango
My Father Knows the Names of Things by Jane Yolen (my favorite kids author!!)
The Sandwich Swap by Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan
Princess PartyGo-Go GorillasThe Sandwich Swap Fanny & Annabelle My Father Knows the Names of Things

Tuck Everlasting

Adult Fiction:

What's in your library bag this week?

My little girl really enjoys The Sandwich Swap. I like telling her that a Queen wrote it. We also liked the origianl Fanny book. For some reason, she didn't take to this new one. Princess Party looks good. I will have to see if our library has that one.

I have looked at the Evolution of Calpurnia Tate a few times. I want to get it for my 9 year old girl, but I am not sure if she has the focus for it yet. Maybe by the end of summer. How are you enjoying it?

Great loot.
