Librarian Humor: Regional Picture Books You Never See in the Library, but Maybe Should
In the spirit of books like B is for Buckeye: an Ohio Alphabet book, I present to you a little bit of librarian humor. This was inspired by my child who stood in an ant hill while watching the homecoming parade on Saturday. For those of you not from Texas, ants are a real problem here in Texas. You can be standing where it appears there are no ants in sight and suddenly find yourself under attack. They swarm, they bite, and it is awful. Later you get a little white head full of puss on your bite and it itches. A lot. So I tweeted this after it happened:
Regional picture books you never see

What would your region's be?

I then invited everyone on Twitter to join in on the fun, and they did not disappoint. Here’s a look at some of our fun Regional Picture Books that you never see in the library, but maybe should.
