I have a young 1st grader who fell in love with the book "Cat Heaven" she has checked out that book every single week since the beginning of February. The other day I ran into her mother. I looked at her and said, "I bet you wish that our library had more than that one book"
She chuckled, shook her head and said "I know it by heart."
I thought to myself I bet you do.
Some years back I had another little girl who kept checking out "Little Red Hen". I thought she should check out another book so when the book came in I hid it figuring she would choose another one, when that one wasn't available. Boy was I wrong on all counts.
When the book couldn't be found she broke down in tears. I felt about 2 inches high for making a kindergartner cry. Later at a school function her mother asked me if there were any other books her daughter could check out.
Smiling I reassured her there were a few. All the while knowing I would never come between a kindergartner and her book ever again.
