What to do About your Brain-Injured Child
What you should do is get a newer book. This was submitted to ALB from 3 different people and I found a copy locally. This is such a serious subject and I cannot believe that it is still on the shelves in quite a few public libraries. Brain injuries and other areas of neuroscience have had quite a bit of progress since this book was published. Is it me or is the ultra “cheerful” colors and graphics a bit odd? This one is a slam dunk, folks. Weed it please!
Wax in our World
Wax as a topic for a medium public library juvenile nonfiction section has got to be one of the oddest ideas ever. Just so you all know, I have no bias against the subject of wax. Hey, wax as a part of a craft or in candle making, I would be all over that. Waxing as hair removal, I might be interested in that for my collection. (Okay, I might have to be sold on that idea. Can you imagine the illustrations when they get to discussing the bikini line?) What makes me laugh is the idea that somewhere a publisher was in a meeting saying “I think the kids are looking for a good book on wax”.
Get the Message
Thanks to the anonymous submitter for this catchy title from her juvenile nonfiction section. I wonder what the message is? How about “this library is SO irrelevant!”
