Capturing childhood silliness and adventure


Making It Available

I spent many hours over countless days bundling the children up, packing the stroller and meandering over to the public library where we spent hours browsing through piles of books. My children would read, leaf through, laugh at, and when they were very young, try to eat so many of the great stories that the public library had to offer.

The greatest thing about libraries is that you don't have to say 'no' when your child says, "Mommy, can I get this one too?" No negotiating, no temper tantrums, only happy children and happy Mommies. Oh how I love libraries.

We would weigh ourselves down with books of all kinds and read them over and over at bedtime until they were due, and then we would begin the routine all over again.

You can imagine my delight when the Ottawa Public Library told me that they will add 'What is Growing Out of Your Ear?' to their collection. I imagined many other happy parents and children reading my story.

I was ecstatic that the Cambridge Libraries and Galleries also agreed to add the book to their collection. It was at this library that my own parents brought me when I was young.

The Kingston Frontenac Public Library is also adding this to their collection. These libraries will be cataloguing the book and adding it shortly to their shelves. Then, the fun will begin.

I am trying to engage as many public and school libraries as I can to add 'What is Growing Out of Your Ear?' to their collection. This way, everyone will have access to enjoy the story.

If it is not available at your public or school library, please approach them to request a copy. This is the best way to spread the fun.
