My local readers will see the humor in my choice of books today:

Today at about 8:40 am the power went out all over town. We didn’t get power back until 10:15 or so. John Rocco’s Caldecott Honor book, Blackout was just begging to be read and shared. In the story the boy is bummed because everyone is too busy to play a board game with him. But when the power goes out, the family rediscovers the joys of being together and with their neighbors.

The only other book on my shelves on this topic is Megan McDonald’s The Big, Bad Blackout.

I haven’t read it, but Judy and Stink are always fabulous!

I am proud to say that we survived the blackout by sharing our brightest space — the library. We had multiple reading groups and physical therapy with room to spare.
