Favorite adult book recommendation — Run by Ann Patchet
Patchett weaves a story of race, religion, and politics into a beautiful story about family. What are the ties that bind, who belongs, and how do we connect to become a family.
Favorite children’s book recommendation — No Fighting, No Biting! by Else Holmelund Minarik, Illustrated by Maurice Sendak
This is a story in a story. There are two siblings who can’t sit still or stop picking on one another so their babysitter tells them a story about two little alligators named Lightfoot and Quickfoot who are bickering so much they almost get eaten by a big hungry alligator. A little old fashioned but a very relevant message for kids of all ages. I still have the book from my childhood which I read to my grandsons!
