Today is my first day back at work at my school library. You will undoubtedly see a big decline in the number of grownup books that I read and review each week; at the same time, you will see an enormous increase in the number of children's books I finish.

What Arrived in the Mail Last Week
Custer's Last Battle:
Red Hawk's Account of the Battle of Little Bighorn
by Paul Goble
From NY Times Review: "Beautifully illustrated and written with verve and authenticity. . . . The pictures are among the best I’ve seen in any children’s history, and the realities conveyed to the young readers are the closest to the final layer of truth that one can hope for."
by Karen Harrington
How Far Do You Love Me?
by Lulu Delacre
From Amazon: "Based on a bedtime game author/illustrator Lulu Delacre played with her young daughters, How Far Do You Love Me? is an "I love you" book with a twist. With every expression of love, readers visit one of thirteen different locations around the world, each a beautifully illustrated scene of adults and children in a place of natural beauty. "
