Gentle Reads

Do you have a picky young eater at home? You are not alone! Bread and Jam for Frances is the story of a winsome little badger who decides that only bread and jam will satisfy her appetite.

Are you feeling like taking a manga break in the middle of a busy schedule of work and bustle? Again we take the time to compare an absolute must-read manga with an up-and-coming manga series. In this edition, we compare the classic slice of life manga Azumanga Daioh with the recently published Kiniro Mosaic!

 

We get a lot of requests for chapter books appropriate for very young kids. I love this request! It’s such a cozy image to think of a family huddled together at bedtime, reading a chapter or two each night. But it’s a little stressful for library staff. Forgetting one small kidnapping or accidental death in a gentle read, and this cozy image takes a traumatic turn.
