I meant to add this to the last post! We recently acquired a FABULOUS book titled 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up. The Warrenton youth services staff has been browsing through this addictive and fascinating book; it's a great mixture of modern titles, classics, international titles, and some really obscure titles. If you're familiar with the other 1001 books (typically, the titles end with "Before You Die"), you'll know that they are a browser's delight and great to have around when you are in between books (this one is a doorstopper; the books are usually paperback). Even if you have no intention of traveling to those 1001 places (although I think there was a reality show featuring a couple who was doing that; was it on PBS?), listening to 1001 recordings, or drinking those 1001 beers (that's coming out in a few months, I think), the books are awesome armchair travel books and very informative. Highly recommended.
