When I was given my list of responsibilities as the new Youth Services Coordinator for Central Rappahannock Regional Library and found writing this column was among them, my first question was about the content. Was I supposed to write about something in particular? When I was told it was all about books, I felt like a kid in a candy store. So many options! Where do I start? My mind began racing, and I came up with a long list of ideas, which I will be mining in the weeks to come, but, for my inaugural column, I decided to go with something that was fresh in my mind: family vacations and what to do with bored kids in the car and on the airplane. My family and I recently returned from a vacation involving several hours in airplanes and cars, and it got me thinking about great books to keep younger children entertained. These are also great books to have at your house for young visitors.
