Here, let’s get a couple close-ups of the types of literature I choose to peruse in the course of my scholarly pursuits:
Dinosailors, always good. And that big cardboard one on the bottom is Tonka Trucks at Work. It has moving parts!
I feel like when you’re a kid in kindergarten and you’ve got that big Strawberry Shortcake/Lisa Frank/Sleeping Beauty/Whatever The Heck Kids These Days Have backpack, and nothing to put in it, so you put your teddy bear in it, and a juice box and maybe some of your mommy’s or daddy’s junk mail, and then you trot it out to show any grown-up you encounter, so they’ll see that you’re a big kid too. With a backpack!
