Baby talk!


From "Brith" to Age Three? C'mon, now--this is just sad. I'm pretty sure I know infants who possess better spelling skills than the person who created the title and/or spine of this book...

Thanks, BETSY, for spotting this very childish mistake!

I'm wondering why the library staff hasnt noticed this and removed the book from the shelves.

That's a darn good question. It's a pretty obvious mistake--how exactly does it go unnoticed?

Yipes - as a cataloger, I wonder why it wasn't noticed - and hoping that the misspelling is covered in the 246 "Alternate Form of Title" field. (Don't worry, nobody else will get that.)

Side note: The Sears book right next to it is AWESOME.

@ Winona: Nice! :) (I'm also thinking that pretty much any book is more awesome than the one I red penned...LOL!)
