THE SOUND AND SMELL OF BOOKS
I was doing a school visit today and then was signing books afterward and I noticed that one of my books (the whole pile) smelled. Nicely of course! You know, this one pile had that BOOK SMELL. I love that book smell! Now I'm not talking about that old antique musty book smell, but rather that new library book paper smell.
Another thing that I like that I was thinking about the other day is that sound that new picture books make when you turn their pages: the one when your finger drags over the page as you are turning it. It's that friction type noise that is so bookish. I love it! Little kids who have trouble turning the pages make that noise a lot.
Those are sound and smell observations for the day.
