Anna's Book Blog

AnnaHi, my name is Anna, and I’m the new Head of the Children’s Department. I grew up here in Goldsboro. I learned to love books and reading early in life thanks to my mom, who brought me to the library many times a week. I’m so excited to be working in the library I grew up with, and to be able to find the perfect book for you. Books allow us to learn so many things about the world and make our imaginations go wild! I’ll be sharing some of my favorite library books with you on this blog, so be sure to visit us to check them out!

A Boy, A Mouse, and a Spider

A Boy, a Mouse, and a Spider by Barbara Herkert 

When young Elwyn White lay in bed as a sickly child, a bold house mouse befriended him. When the time came for kindergarten, an anxious Elwyn longed for the farm, where animal friends awaited him at the end of each day. Propelled by his fascination with the outside world, he began to jot down his reflections in a journal. Writing filled him with joy, and words became his world.

Today, Stuart Little and Charlotte’s Web are beloved classics of children’s literature, and E. B. White is recognized as one of the finest American writers of all time.

Have you ever read Charlotte's Web? This book tells about the boy who grew up to write that story! Sometimes it is fun to think about our favorite authors as young children. What will you grow up to write or do?
