From the Editor – October 2013

sutton roger 170x304 From the Editor   October 2013I’d probably get in trouble with the ALA for this today, but back when I was a children’s librarian in the last century we limited Halloween-book checkouts to three per customer. There simply were never enough to go around, and I’m talking in November. Or December. Or Januar—you see where this is going. So please regard this booklist of spooky stories (and the expanded list of recommendations on our website) as evergreen for use all year round. And speaking of evergreen, are kids still raiding the Christmas books in July?
