 My Bookish Book Collection

Ever since I can remember, I have collected books about books, reading, and libraries.  I love to read them and share them with children.  As a former school librarian and reading specialist, I would kick off the school year by sharing these sort of books with students as they had their first visit of the school year to the library and during my first lesson with classes and small groups.  Over the years, my collection has grown quite a bit.  The picture above features only some of my collection!  

On Saturday, while running errands, my husband and I made an impromptu stop at our local bookstore (I could visit on a weekly basis!).  As I browsed the children's area, I stumbled upon this "new to me" book about books and reading!  It practically leapt off the shelf and into my waiting arms!  Although I am no longer in the school as an employee, I do plan to be a volunteer storyteller, on a monthly basis and Allan Wolf's, No Buddy Like a Book will certainly be one of my first read aloud selections!
