Beautifully illustrated book that helps children learn about sequencing. It's short enough for one on one reading, or a sharing book for teachers.

“Because every day with a book is slightly better than one without, and I wish you nothing but the happiest of days. Now,”
Jenny Colgan, The Bookshop on the Corner

“[L]ibrarians, like ministers of religion, and poets, and people with mental health disorders, can make people nervous.”
Ian Sansom

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“Feminism and femininity are not mutually exclusive. It is misogynistic to suggest that they are. Sadly, women have learned to be ashamed and apologetic about pursuits that are seen as traditionally female, such as fashion and makeup. But our society does not expect men to feel ashamed of pursuits considered generally male - sports cars, certain professional sports. In the same way, men's grooming is never suspect in the way women's grooming is - a well-dressed man does not worry that, because he is dressed well, certain assumptions might be made about his intelligence, his ability, or his seriousness. A woman, on the other hand, is always aware of how a bright lipstick or a carefully-put-together outfit might very well make others assume her to be frivolous.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“1492. As children we were taught to memorize this year with pride and joy as the year people began living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America. Actually, people had been living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America for hundreds of years before that. 1492 was simply the year sea pirates began to rob, cheat, and kill them.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

“Life, any life, is very short. But if you've managed to be happy for at least an instant, it will have been worth living.”
Antonio Iturbe, La bibliotecaria de Auschwitz
