I Am Invited to a Party!
Just like Piggie, I have been invited to a party!
In fact, it's my honor: a "Sarah Celebration" if you will, as planned and named by a co-worker to say goodbye to the families and friends I've made working at this particular library for nearly five years. More soon on where exactly I'm going!
In the meantime, as part of the festivities I will share a book. Considering how often I read stories aloud to groups, this part should be a no-brainer. Except for the fact that I'm oddly blocked on the appropriate choice.
Should I stick with the theme and choose a story involving librarians, reading or moving forward with new experiences? Read The Giving Tree or Love You Forever? (Smile: joke for us children's librarians.) Choose one of my favorites that invites audience participation, or a book that I just personally love?
I still have a few days to decide, and will likely bring many choices to see which feels just right. I've been considering this from the perspective of which story ultimately defines me, which may not be the proper question. The best part of being a librarian is sharing books with others, so I should read what moves me to do just that in the moment.
What would you choose?
