  1. Hey! Just saw your comment on my blog about ALA. I am going, not sure what date though. My aunt who is also a librarian in IL and I have to coordinate what day - but I think we're just going to hit up the exhibits. Lots of awesome free swag to be gotten! I went there when it was last in Chicago three or four years back and came home with three bags full of stuff. :) Love ALA.

  2. I'll let you know when I know what date I'm going - I'm sure it will be an all-day adventure for us getting lost in the exhibits. :) I'm so excited.

  3. Georgia Nicolson!? I love those books. xD
    Especially Dave the Laugh<3.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too!
