    Blog: Picture Book Month: Books for Infants
    Many believe that December is the "most wonderful time of the year" but for a children's librarian, it's any time we can share our love for reading. This especially applies when we're sharing it with our youngest patrons. November is Picture Book Month and in celebration, I'm sharing some of my favorite picture books for infants (the under two crowd).

    Dogs are all ears as kids practice reading in Philly libraries
    Over the past year, therapy dogs have started visiting area libraries to hear young children practice reading. The dogs have become so popular that librarians across Philadelphia are inviting them to their branches. A chocolate lab named Rocky and his handler, Connie Mumper, took part in story time at the Torresdale branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia for the first time Wednesday night.
