Most of the week's PK library news is shown below, but I wanted to make you aware of a very exciting event at Pages: A Bookstore this Sunday: Kwame Alexander, Newbery-winning author of Crossover, will be presenting a storytime and signing books, including his new picture book Surf's Up! That's Sunday, February 14, at 2:00 p.m. Reservations are recommended, 310-318-0900.

The Tiny Hero of Ferny Creek Library, by Linda Bailey
Part of what makes paper a brilliant technology may be, in fact, that it offers us so much and no more. A small child cannot tap the duck and elicit a quack; for that, the child needs to turn to a parent. And when you cannot tap the picture of the horse and watch it gallop across the page, you learn that your brain can make the horse move as fast as you want it to, just as later on it will show you the young wizards on their broomsticks, and perhaps even sneak you in among them.
