Books to the Sky! (Quote of the Day)

Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky.
My pile of books
Are a mile high.
How I love them!
How I need them!
I'll have a long beard
By the time I read them.
-Arnold Lobel
I didn't know who Arnold Lobel was, so of course (being the librarian I want to be), I went and looked him up. Turns out he is none other than the author that brought us such famous classic books as The Frog and Toad series. Anyone else remember these?

Even had he not been a successful author and winner of the Caldecott medal, I would respect him for his recognition of our desire to collect books even when we know we cannot possibly read them all.
