Patricia Brady-Danzig at a pre-school in Bucharest, Romania, reading “Fabrizio’s Fable” in English and Romanian——October, 2011.
July 8, 2012
“Fabrizio’s Fable”, my charming children’s book, which was published in May of 2011, has had a very busy year.
Fabrizio and I have visited areas in New Jersey that I have never seen before. We’ve been in urban, country, seaside and countless other new venues.
What has connected me in my quest to make Fabrizio known to a large public, is the many libraries which have invited us to have book signings.
And, of course, there are the CONNECTORS! The librarians! I’ve met many representatives of this noble vocation, both male and female.
I’ve discovered that there are several traits which are common to all the librarians I have met. They are:
COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION
CARING CONCERN FOR CHILDREN
EXCITEMENT AND LOVE OF BOOKS
RAPPORT WITH THE PUBLIC
EAGERNESS TO TRY SOMETHING NEW
LOVE OF LEARNING
SUPPORTIVE OF NEW WORKS
CONNECTED TO THE WORLD OUTSIDE
AND THE WORLD OF THE WEB
Because I am in love with the Fabrizio story, and have enjoyed sharing it with so many children and adults, I have been in the center of a totally new world for me——the world of books.
I’m enjoying my moments with Fabrizio and the new friends we are making.
But mostly, I would like to cheer those who help us so skillfully to inspire and enliven the lives of children everywhere:
