Thorndyke Reading a Book

 

Hey Library People,

So many books exist in the world. It's hard to know which ones to read. If you might be interested in something lovely and hopeful, or funny and well-crafted, all about the importance of books and reading, try one of these books. I hope you like them as much as I do. They might look mostly for kids, but don't let that stop you from grabbing one. They're great even if you're old. I'm no spring chicken myself, and I love all of these.

Bear Hugs,

Thorndyke
