This book is full of delightful, sometimes comical comments and stories by children. These are stories gleaned from 27 years of interacting with elementary school children. The author worked in elementary education as a librarian and aide, with children ranging in age from preschool to fifth grade.
These stories illustrate the unique, and impressionable view of young children, as they learn about their world. Children have important things to say. They are honest and uninhibited. Those who listen carefully, will be enamored, enlightened, and entertained. It is our hope that these stories will brighten your day and lighten your load, as you travel along your path through this life. - via GoodReads
I’m not actually going to review this book in my typical way. I know that my view is skewed and I can’t be unbiased. I did want to let you know about this book that I loved.
Jeannie Hanna (or better known to me “Mrs. Hanna”) was my elementary school librarian. I grew up in a small town of just 3600 people. My little home town was the scope of my world for the first 20 years of my life.
Two women (outside of my own mother) helped give my imagination flight. My public librarian and my elementary school librarian, Mrs. Hanna. She tucked away stories from her experiences as an elementary school librarian for over 20 years and compiled them into a book.
While I can’t be unbiased in a review of Laughable, Lovable, Lessons Learned in the Library by Jeannie R. S. Hanna I can honestly say that I adored this book and seeing my fellow students’ experiences from the adult perspective. If interested all of the profit from this book is being donated to the St. Jude’s Hospital in Peoria, IL.
