The meerkat toy is the most borrowed toy in the library. I bought it to go with Emily Gravett's Meerkat Mail, but now Richard Byrne's Millicent and Meer and Jan Latta's Mia the Meerkat are borrowed just as much.
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.
