After I wrote the last post I decided to text Leticia and Angela to let them know about the Rainbow Magic series. Maybe their 1st graders would like them, too. Leticia suggested she buy some of the books for Solana's birthday. "Great!" I thought. "Now Solana can get the books that the library doesn't carry and I don't have to buy them." So I told Leticia I'd let her know which series the library doesn't carry.
This is how I spent the last 45 minutes. First I had to locate the list of series online. Then I had to copy, paste, and format so that it all fit on one page (didn't want to waste too much paper or flip pages while crossing off my list.) Then I pulled up all the Rainbow Magic books from the library and crossed them off one by one. Either I'm exceptionally neurotic or these kids don't appreciate us enough. Look - I even wore out my pink highlighter!
