Our Favorite Books at FLOC

The FLOC staff recently came together for a baby shower.  Since we are all lovers of literature at FLOC, many staff members brought their favorite children’s books to share with the baby.  Some are well-known, award-winning classics and others are just fondly remembered.  In no particular order, here are some FLOC staff favorites:
