Hey there! Welcome to the ‘about’ page! Aren’t you thorough? I’m Charity and for more than 10 years I’ve been a children’s librarian. I have a passion for music, play and messy storytimes.
Favorite books: Rattletrap Car by Phyllis Root, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg, Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg or 2 A.M. at the Cat’s Pajamas by Marie-Helene Bertino
Favorite Food: Chicken Korma
Book that made me LOL the most: The Stench of Honolulu by Jack Handey
Book that made me cry: The Horse and His Boy by C. S. Lewis
Literary Crush: Totally hot picture book author Peter Brown. Am I right???
Book everyone assumes I, as a children’s librarian, have read but haven’t: Harry Potter. Don’t judge me!
Favorite thing about being a children’s librarian: I get paid to play, sing, dance and make an artful mess on a weekly basis and encourage parents to do the same!
Why Chapter & Stack?
This. “So soon you will be in that part of the book where you are holding the bulk of the pages in your left hand, and only a thin wisp of the story in your right.” from Donald Miller in Through Painted Deserts
Why Little Miss Litberry?
Little Miss as a nod to some of my favorite childhood books, the Mr. Men and Little Miss books by Roger Hargreaves. Through second grade library time meant curling up with those books at one of the carpeted window seats my library had. Lit because I’m all about the books. And berry for liberry because that’s how some people pronounce ‘library’ and, well, that’s just funny.
