Be sure to read the general information about the "letterbooks" before attempting them!

If you haven't already discovered it, the MLC has an entire section of its library dedicated to children's literature - not something you typically see at a college!  To be honest, I probably could just set up camp down there for an entire summer and read to my hearts content!  There are so many books to catch

up on. . . . Needless to say, I was heartbroken when the Children's Literature semester was over.  (There is actually a fairly funny story about this time in my life that you might ask me about if you ever meet me.)

When you "stamp up" in this letterbook, please be prepared to identify and also write a little bit about your favorite book while growing up.  Maybe the current students in Children's Literature will find our reminiscing of interest!
