Just a couple odds and ends (mostly odds since it's moi)....

Library read-alouds:

Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type -- Doreen Cronin (illus. by Betsy Lewin)
Sylvester and the Magic Pebble -- William Steig
Agent A to Agent Z -- Andy Rash
Koala Lou -- Mem Fox (illustrated by Pamela Lofts)

I also must note that on the back of Sylvester it says that it was named one of the 100 Best Books of the Century by the NEA. Who, exactly, decided that was a list worth coming up with? Yikes. As if awards and lists in general aren't fraught with issues. One book a year, on average? Puh-lease. Still, at least Mr. Steig was alive to see it. That's gotta be quite a feeling....
