want a personalized list of book recommendations? click ask & tell me about what you've been reading lately / what you'd like your list to cover. i'll then make you a list of at least ten books with short descriptions and (hopefully) links to longer reviews by me. i'm a children's librarian so kids'/YA books are my strong points, but i'm more than happy to give adult books a shot, too.
Book Review: Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie
When Eleanor’s babysitter Bibi moves far away, Eleanor is devastated. Life without her favorite person is hard. Everything Eleanor used to like to do is now unpleasant and sad because it reminds her of Bibi. It’s awful - way worse than pickle juice on a cookie. Things get even worse when Eleanor’s parents hire a NEW babysitter.
Written in verse, this short, charming novel explores loss in a fresh way - no one dies; Bibi has only moved away and still cares very much about Eleanor. Eleanor learns to accept and even come to like her new babysitter, but no one can ever replace Bibi.
