While many of James Herriot's picture books are now out of print, it is surprising how often they still leave the the library. Some because they are on the Premier's Reading Challenge booklist, others because they are illustrated by the popular illustrator, Ruth Brown, and others just because they are about animals. For whatever reason it is good that they are still read by children today.
I'm a teacher/librarian in an early childhood school library. The library caters for 3-8 year old children, their teachers and their parents.
My aim here is to showcase at least one book each day until there is ' a year in a Prep School Library'. Usually the date will be the birthday of someone who is connected with Children's Literature.
I have met my initial challenge to write about a book every day, so now I write much more intermittently when I have learned of a new birthday, special day, have had a wonderful teaching moment or have found a great new book.
