Snow Globes and Other Collections

Celebrating Snow Globes by Nina Chertoff and Susan Kahn is a book about the size of your hand but it is filled with an entire world of snow globes.  Books about collections are better than the real thing: no dusting is required, and when you get tired of it you can return it to the library.  Here are only a few of the bright shiny things that can be collected and read about: rocks, teapots, carnival glass, snow globes, fluorescent minerals and girls' series books.

Other kinds of collections you can read about at the library: PEZ dispensers (sometimes they even come inside snow globes!), glass bells, Lladro figurines, boys' series books, board games, Disneyana, buffalo nickels and surfboards.
