My Grandson, Ethan,
will not be doing occasional reviews
here at Libby’s Library.
I’m hoping that Ethan’s Elucidations
will become a monthly
or bi-monthly occurrence.
Ethan is 10 (going on 60).
I often think of him as an old soul
in a very young body.
He has the wisdom of Saul,
and the compassion of Mother Teresa.
I love him very much,
and am honored to have him as my
as a fellow book lover

(He is probably going to get really ticked
that I chose this photo…but dang, he’s
just so darn cute in this one!)
Ethan gets the books, that he will be reviewing,
from his school library.
