The kid parts of myself want to read more books and hear more stories.  The other day at a book sale I found Book Crush by Nancy Pearl.  It recommends books for kids and teens, so we made a trip to the library.  The teens got Son of a witch by Gregory Maguire, the pre-teens picked out The Folk Keeper by Frannie Billingsley, and the little ones wanted Strega Nona by Tomie de Paola.  We remember that one from when our son was little and it was one of our favorites.  The adults checked out The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta and several others.  I wonder what people think when they see me checking out children’s books.  Many people who are not dissociative have told me they like children’s books too.
