Submitter: A colleague put this recently circulated item in my mailbox; it cannot go back on the shelves in its newly damaged condition. You can see the scribble marks on the front, and inside covers. She also put the post-it note on the book, noting the wonderful irony of this typically very frustrating occurrence for all librarians. How great to turn a negative into humor. Unfortunately, Mr. Rosemond, well-respected in his field, will have a slight ding to his reputation due to this child’s artwork.
Holly: I love this. Too, too funny. It’s a perfectly fine book and a great choice for public libraries. I’m sure Mr. Rosemond is truly “America’s Most Widely Read Parenting Expert” and has many, many successes to his credit. There’s always one, though, isn’t there?
