In Honor of Father’s Day: God and the Swearing Book

In honor of Father’s Day, I offer a link to an article about my favorite two reference questions. What good dads these two fathers were! It was originally published in the LAST WORD column of CHILDREN & LIBRARIES magazine, 2009.

A New Year’s Gift for Lovers of Kid Lit. . . .

 

What a gift to start out the new year! I absolutely LOVE this funny little article in the New York Times about the science behind some of our favorite children’s books. What, exactly, does brown bear see? Why is George so curious? And could the Pigeon drive the bus better than a human? If, like George, you’re curious to know the answers to these perplexing questions click on the link below.  Enjoy!!!!

LOL!
