Library Loot #14

For the kids:

Some of these I've already reviewed here, here, and here.  Others I'll be reviewing soon.

For me:

Not pictured: The Food 52 Cookbook by Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs and The Table Comes First: Family, France and the Meaning of Food by Adam Gopnik.  I couldn't renew these as they were on hold for someone else but I definitely want to check them out again.  I didn't time to read the latter and, although I perused the former, I didn't have time to cook anything from it.  I seem to remember something about crisped polenta and boozy apple cake, though.

And in case you were wondering, no, I haven't read them all.  I was overly ambitious this month.  I'm afraid a few of these will be going back unread.  But I'll put them on hold again!

What are you and your kids reading?


  1. I see lots of Cybils action there.

    Are you comfortable with sending books back unread? I always feel a sense of loss.

    Good to see two Australian titles in the pile. Maudie and the Bear won Book of the Year Early Childhood here last year, so I am interested to see what you think. Prudence Wants a Pet is newer and it will be interesting to see if it makes the shortlist for the same award this year.
