Buddha and Mr. B celebrate the V.

Without a doubt, one of the most delicious perks of being a children's librarian is the fan mail and warm fuzzies. Lucky me,  I have received my share of wonderous, if not curious, "gifts" over the years but this is the first time I've received my own personal Buddha for Valentines Day.

You'll remember my good buddy Mr. B from this post. He presented me this valentine today (Yes, a bit late but is there ever a day a valentine is not welcome?) with the accompanying Buddha and proclaimed, "That statue is 4000 years old."

He then gave me strict instructions, "Sit down and be SILENT  for 2 minutes plus about 1 minute. Make a wish in your mind. He <Buddha> will probably grant it to you."

I asked, "What do you think I should wish for?"  Mr. B shrugged his shoulders and said, "I suggest a great storytime."

Oh great Zeus {laughing}.

And speaking of storytimes, it is NEVER EVER too early to start reading to your baby. I love this little Buddha baby. Grab a couple of board books and read to your Buddha.

Ode to Us

Happy Valentine's Day dear reader. One last poem from the lovely Julie Andrews' Treasury For All Seasons book of poems and songs.

Indeed this is the bottom line; you read to me, I'll read to you and forever shall you be mine, Sweet Valentine.
