Every Sunday, we share the books that managed to find their way into our shelves, our book hunting expeditions, our literary journeys that brought even more books into our hands. Over the past two weeks, I have been sharing the children’s books that have been passed on to me by Librarian Extraordinaire, Katie Day. Here is the final set of books from her stellar collection.
