A children's book a day, keeps the scary monster away. I am a Librarian and created this blog to share my love of children's books with the rest of the world. I will include my comments on children's books that I love and have shared with others.
I have shared many of these books with my students during storytime when I was the Librarian at the St. Benedict the Moor K to 8 school.

Bantam of the Opera - Written and Illustrated by Mary Jane Auch
Bantam of the Opera
Written and Illustrated by Mary Jane Auch
Luigi may have been born a bantam rooster, but he has the soul of a musician. When his musical variations on the boring "Cock-a-doodle-do"get him in trouble with the head rooster, Luigi takes to wandering away from the hen house where his talents are not appreciated. Then one day, roosting on the farmer's front porch, Luigi hears something on the radio that will change his life forever--- opera!
As an opera lover and librarian, I giggled when I saw the this book in the library. I laughed even harder when I started reading this delightfully witty children's book! The colors are vibrant and inviting! There are lots of bright oranges, purples, greens, blues! This book is what you would expect for an opera-related children's book! This will be a great book for story time!
I highly recommend that anyone who loves a funny story and who likes opera should read this book!
Until the next time.....
