Kiddie literature in the waiting room

Thanks to the good influence of my friend Mary Lundeberg, wildlife photographer and author of children's books that teach about nature and the environment, I wound up reviewing the reading materials for kids in the beauty salon and in my dentist's office this week. In the beauty salon, I found Zen Ties by Jon J. Muth a fascinating, charming work of fiction; at the dentist, Dangerous Animals, a non-fiction work by Rebecca Gilpin, so distorts the featured animals in both the text and the illustrations that I’m planning to ask my dentist to remove it from her office.
