From Saturday's photos taken chez Mabel Watson Payne it turns out I have three sets of reading-photos involving three different readers. First her grandmother, with the all-cloth monkey book. Mabel Watson Payne seems to nurture a special fondness for stories about monkeys. She will even make a monkey sound, upon request. "Tsssk, tsssk, tsssk."
At the end of the afternoon nap the parents returned, happily loaded down with bags of books from the annual Friends of the San Francisco Public Library book sale out at Fort Mason in a vast warehouse. This is an event they rarely miss. And some of the previously-owned books they found this year were children's books. Those needed to be shared right away.
