A growing concern

These are my good buds, Mr. B, Mr. J, and Miss S. Long-time library kids (well, they haven't been on the planet all that long) and faithful friends.

Generally speaking I am not one of the those wild librarians who advocate the desecration of library furniture. But I do have a soft spot for the many kids who ask me to keep track of their growth.

This posse in general never visits without asking to be measured.
It is sweet to see all the kids who start out as infants and gradually grow up and over the Biography shelves. Soon after to be seen loitering around the Teen shelves. Sigh...

So here we are, another summer wrapping up. Soon it'll be time to buy new back-to-school clothes a few inches longer and a shoe size larger. But we still have time to get in a few good stories about things that grow.

Here are a few of my favorites. Click on each cover to whisk you away to the catalog. See you in the kid's room where I'll measure you, no matter how big or little you are.
