We often travel far and wide
But really truth will oft reside
Beneath your sometimes clueless hide
Which takes your wanderings in stride
Surprised to find a paucity
When she first came to Newberry
A woman by the name “Jenny”
Then urged this esteemed library
To showcase works of yesteryear
(From 10,000 books, I hear)
For reasons she made very clear:
Children’s lit to her is dear
Note: Chicago’s Newberry Library has a brand new exhibit!
Artifacts of Childhood: 700 Years of Children’s Books opens this Saturday (9/27/08) courtesy curators Jenny Schwartzberg and Paul Gehl.
