Introducing At The Lamp-Post

January 7, 2022

“I can always get back if anything goes wrong,” thought Lucy.
She began to walk forward, crunch-crunch over the snow and
through the wood toward the other light. In about ten minutes
she reached it and found it was a lamp-post.”
          – C. S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

 

Read to Them currently features 150 books in its active catalog. We’re book people, after all, so we’re passionate about carefully selecting books by a wide-range of voices to enrich a child’s personal library. We talk about books and what’s in them every day. Conversations about characters, themes, and even single lines enrich our work and our relationships.  The books we love provide the details that help us build the connections that come from a love of reading.

We’d like to invite you to pull up a chair and join our conversation and share your reading insights, too, by stopping by At The Lamp-Post.

Each month, we’ll select a theme and highlight three books that illustrate subtle aspects of that theme.  In January, we’ll be all about Friendship – how unlikely friends come together, how not all friendships look the same, how vital it is to show vulnerability in a friendship, how friends help you see yourself in a different light.

We’ll be sharing examples of these subtle themes in Toys Go Out by Emily Jenkins, Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate, and Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis.

Our table has plenty of open seats. We can’t wait to talk with you and invite you to make your voice heard.  Please join us this month – At The Lamp-Post!
