Library Loot ~ March 6-12

This Is Not My Hat ~ by Jon Klassen, 2012, children's, 9/10
A fish has stolen a hat.  And he'll  probably get away with it.  Probably.  In this Caldecott Medal Book, a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), and trouble could be following close behind.  So it’s a good thing that enormous fish won’t wake up.  And even if he does, it’s not like he’ll ever know what happened.
Creepy Carrots ~ by Aaron Reynolds, 2012, children's, 8/10
The carrots that grow in Crackenhopper Field are the fattest and crispiest around and Jasper Rabbit cannot resist pulling some to eat each time he passes by, until he begins hearing and seeing creepy carrots wherever he goes.  In this Caldecott Honor Book, it's like The Twilight Zone comes to the carrot patch as the little rabbit fears his favorite treats are out to get him.
The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap: A Memoir of Friendship, Community, and The Uncommon Pleasure of a Good Book ~ by Wendy Welch, 2012, memoir, 9/10
This memoir is about the little bookstore that could:  how two people, two cats, two dogs, and thirty-eight thousand books helped a small town find its heart.  It is a story about people and books, and how together they create community.
Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire @ The Captive Reader and Marg @ The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages us to share titles of books we’ve checked out of the library.  Add your link any time during the week, and see what others got this week.

Those kid books look so cute and fun! And that Little Book store book sound like it would be a very interesting heart warming read. I have added that one on my TBR pile.

Enjoy your loot!
