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.
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.
