Welcome to Our New Little Puppy!

When I'm not blogging, I'm taking care of my cute little dogs! On Saturday Mr. GreenBeanSexy Man and I went to pick up the newest addition to our family-a male Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier! We named him Zedd (after Zedd in the Sword of Truth Series) and his full name is Zeddicus Albus Zul' Thompson (yes we're dorks!) His big sister dog Wrigley isn't sure what to think of him yet, but she's getting used to him. And Zedd has explored my office library and already walked over a stack of books-I hope he doesn't try eating them like Wrigley did! Welcome to the family Zedd!

  9. O.M.G. Zedd is awesomely cute! I'm definitely getting in the mood to have a dog but my tiny apartment and work schedule is SO not conducive.

    Welcome home Zedd!

  12. What a cutie pie! Who could ever resist that fuzzy little face? And Wriggley is such a pretty girl too! She doesn't look too thrilled but it must be hard to have somebody new come along and get the attention. You'll have to post lots of photos as Zedd grows up. Have fun! :)

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There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference.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! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
