Every Saturday we hope to share with you our thoughts on reading and books. We thought that it would be good practice to reflect on our reading lives and our thoughts about reading in general. While on occasion, we would feature a few books in keeping with this, there would be a few posts where we will just write about our thoughts on read-alouds, libraries, reading journals, upcoming literary conferences, books that we are excited about, and just book love miscellany in general.
Busy weeks mean light reads! Check out these fun picture books I found in our catalog! Happy weekend!

Tallulah isn’t just the tooth fairy. She’s the CEO of tooth fairies.
Meet Tallulah. She is the Tooth Fairy CEO. She knows everything about being a tooth fairy. She is very passionate about her job and she knows how to maintain a healthy life-work balance. One evening, she comes across a boy who leaves a note under his pillow instead of his tooth! What a predicament! The boy’s letter turns Tallulah’s professional life upside down. What could the boy have said? I leave it for you to find out. Tallulah the Tooth Fairy CEO is a fun picture book for young readers. As an adult reader, I enjoyed the funny anecdotes in some pages. Overall, a sweet read about a tooth fairy who takes her job seriously.
