… And the rest of him, hungry.

     Do you like to read?  I loooooove to read; kids’ books, westerns, Christian Romance, history, science… you name it.  Years ago, I was a Librarian and my favorite job was when I could spend time in the childrens’ section of the library.  I always enjoyed checking the books in and out for people, kids in particular, because I could kind of keep up with what everyone was reading.

     I don’t recall if I’ve told you about this before, but one of my favorite authors, back then, was a man by the name of Jack kent.  Among other books, he wrote one called Round Robin.  There was a constant waiting list of about thirty people who wanted to read this book.  I kept thinking that I would have my chance to check the book out, if I was just willing to wait long enough.

     Well, lemme’ tell you something about books and kids.  When kids find one that they like, its right next to impossible to squeeze into the waiting line to have a look.  Finally, I had to add my name to the waiting list so I would eventually have a chance to read the book, myself.

     This book is out of print, but you just might be able to find it on Amazon or Barnes & Noble, if you want to read it.  There’s also the slimmest chance that you might find a copy to read, by checking into Inter-Library Loan.

     Just to give you an idea as to why Round Robin was so popular, here’s the first sentence:  “In the beginning, Round Robin was just like all the other baby robins; most of him Head and the rest of him, Hungry.”

     See what I mean?  Now, I ask you, could you resist reading a book that starts out like that?  I do hope you will do some research and find this book.  I truly believe it’s something you might enjoy.  Happy reading and happy blogging.  And ’til the next time, keep a hug on.

  1. I LOVE to read, and I can't limit myself to any particular genre, although there are a few genres I don't read, like sci fi. Round Robin sounds delightful!! Too bad it's out of print.

  2. I will have to see if it is available online. My husband is getting a Kindle for his birthday and maybe he will let me borrow it…someday! ;DThanks for the suggestion.

  3. WHen I was a kid I loved kids and juvenile fiction and yes, I still love it today too. I mean Anne of Green Gables, Madeline L'Engle, Neil Gailman, and Louisa May Alcott…how can you beat that. Thanks for sharing and round robin certainly sounds like one I would like to read too.

  4. Awww… that sounds like a sweet book! I LOVE children's literature and have often wondered if I would be content as a librarian some day 🙂

  5. When I was a child one of my favorite reading discoveries were the books written by Madeline L'Engle & her series that started with "A Wrinkle in Time"!! I still have the books & I just reread them a couple of years ago!! Love,Marilynxxoo

  6. Girl, you've hit on my passion! I LOVE children's books! We went to a book signing today, and I sat in the middle of all the kids and folded my own origami Yoda. I had a blast! Great post!
