Sometimes, I just get so proud of myself I can't even help it! I love it when someone comes up to me with a random question, and gives me almost no details about what they are looking for, but yet, I still manage to come up with the answer...or rather, the RIGHT answer. Take this story, for example!!
Today, I can tell a similar story...
A young dad came in with his 7 year old son, looking for Junie B. Jones and other appropriate books for 2nd graders. I helped him find a bunch of stuff, and he's very appreciative. Then he comes to me with this:
Young Dad: There was this book that I read when I was about his age. It was about a frog and some other animals and I remember it was green.
Real Librarian: Um, okay... Well, can you tell me anything else about it?
YD: No, not really. There were more than one of them, though.
RL: It wasn't Frog and Toad, was it? **pulls out a copy of Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel**
YD: Holy crap, that's it!!
Thank you, thank you!! I'm here all week.
