A to Z Book Collector

Hello Book Lover,

My eye caught a fun read by Kelly DiPucchio called Alfred Zector Book Collector. I love collecting children’s books. My husband says I have a mini library in my literacy room. I smile and wish for one more.

Alfred loves books too. He finds comfort and laughter in books. Alfred is so zealous in owning books, he collects and trades with everyone. While Alfred is reading his books, the town has become dull. They have no books. One line that saddens my heart is

There were children who’d never been read to before!”

Oh my goodness, I love reading books to children. It’s their delight that inspires me to find more books. Currently I’m teaching summer school to fourteen kindergarteners. Reading a great book captures their attention and their faces light up. We are having fun!

Alfred realizes the joy of sharing a great book. With books from A to Z, the community awakens through his contribution.

Reader, know that I find joy in sharing a good book with you. May the children who’s lives you touch be blessed with a good book each day!

With a kindred heart,

Mary Helen

    This sounds fun, Mary Helen. Thanks for sharing about it. I am a book collector too, & I think I’ve given away as many as I have! I keep needing different groups!

    Retirement has slowed down my book purchases some, but when I see one I know a grandkid would like someday… This one looks like a lot of fun. I think I will have to check it out.

    Riley could hardly wait for you to read your book out loud! I always want to be read to, too, at our BONS’s meetings!!! Another book title to add to my notebook of lists. Thank you for your love of reading to others.
