Children’s Library Corner: Hickory by Palmer Brown

If you loved Abel’s Island by William Steig or Stuart Little by E.B. White, then you need to try Hickory by Palmer Brown!

We are welcoming back Ruhama for another edition of Children’s Library Corner.  I love her choices for you to check out.  Sometimes the books she chooses may be out of print, so walk–no, run–to your nearest library to find these hidden treasures. In the case of her choice this month, I know you can get it at Red Balloon Bookshop and Wild Rumpus. Especially with the Minnesota (and Wisconsin) temperatures starting to drop, this is the perfect time to start stocking up on great literature!

Children’s Library Corner: Lionel and the Spy Next Door

Ruhama is back with another great book suggestion!  This book is out of print so look for it in the library or online: Lionel and the Spy Next Door.

Seeing good books languish on the library shelves makes me sad, so I’ve come up with a few pairings to get you to try some of these ‘older’ titles, triggering your memory with something that’s considered a classic. Today’s offering is:

If you loved Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh, then you must try Lionel and the Spy Next Door by Linda Allen!
