The Berenstain Bear Scouts Save That Backscratcher
Submitter: I am a school librarian at a public K-4 school. I recently decided to clean up and relabel some Berenstain Bear chapter books in hopes to get them circulating. I found this one in the mix. I actually cleaned it up and relabeled it with the rest of the set. I made sure my AR label covered the creepy guy in the background though. I am sure kids wouldn’t think twice about that cover but some parents might!
Holly: Ha ha! I didn’t notice it at first, but he is a bit “into it” with the hat strategically placed. Ewww.
McCall’s Annual of Creative Handcrafts
Breakout the needles and crochet hooks everyone. We have some lovely outfits for you to craft, not to mention some cute animals and “whimsical action figures” too. (Warning! Knitted clown figure in the last picture. Proceed at your own risk.) The lace coverup isn’t too bad in my fashion-challenged opinion, however that granny “square”skirt has some serious issues. I have no idea what is going on with the “vest”/jewelry thing paired with the skirt.
I might be inspired to breakout my crafting supplies and watch re-runs of the Brady Bunch.
The Secret of Married Love
Another Christian marriage advice book that evidently depends on women just cooperating with their designated role. Remember God is all about women shutting up, obeying your husband and keeping a nice house. Let him do all the thinking for you.
In a few weeks, I will be having my 35th wedding anniversary with my husband. (We refer to it as “surviving” rather than “celebrating”.) I am of the belief that marriage is a function of luck, security and low expectations.
Shutting up now.
