Weekly Low Down on Kids Books 8/08/12

Story time at Half Price Books Humble has been quiet, has been loud, has been vacant, has been crowded.  Today, it was just right.  We had 9 children, all bright eyed and ready for me to read to them.

I always find it refreshing to be around other people who read, even if they are little people.  So it was with great joy that I discovered Hooray for You! A Celebration of You-ness with them today.  Marianne Richmond’s picture book is sweet and colorful.  Everyone present seemed to enjoy it quite a bit, even the parents.  It opened up the opportunity to be a little more inter-active than we usually are at story time, talking about each kid’s favorite colors and other things that made them unique.

This one is definitely a must-have, and I look forward to finding more of Richmond’s treasures tucked away on the shelves of Half Price Books.  According to her website, her books are available through Barnes & Noble as well as most other book retailers.
