Today's post comes courtesy of Rita, the librarian behind the desk of Screwy Decimal. This isn't her first time here, I'm sure many of you remember her post from earlier this year. I'll let her take it away:
Last week, a precocious fifth-grade girl asked me for help with finding some "good books" to read for fun. She wanted something realistic and humorous, so I immediately thought of Paula Danziger, whose books I had loved at that age. The girl had already read and enjoyed "The Cat Ate My Gymsuit," so I picked up a copy of "There's a Bat in Bunk Five" to show her. I flipped through the book to check its condition before giving it to the girl (with library books, you never know if a page or ten are missing) and this red piece of paper fell out. The "bookmark" label says business, but the smiley face says fun. Happy reading!
