Using Pop Culture to Make Libraries Better.

Listen to Gwyneth

The December InStyle arrived today, and since it's the holidays it has the ever interesting "Ultimate Gift Guide".

The good news? The kids/babies "perfect gifts" include books.

The bad news? All 3 are "celebrity" authors.

Marsupial Sue Presents the Runaway Pancake by John Lithgow;
Please, Puppy, Please by Spike Lee; and
New York State Of Mind by Billy Joel.

If, like me, you are disappointed about the children's books being all celebrity, never fear. In the same issue, Gwyneth Paltrow talks about being a mom and mentions the following books that are popular with her 19 month old daughter: Goodnight Moon; Maisy's Bedtime; "More More More" Said the Baby; and Hippos Go Berserk!

If you're looking for a book a toddler would like -- I'd go with Gwyneth's choices.
