This book is the teen librarian's best friend.

We're doing library tours for the boys in a local group home all this week. Phineas Gage is one of the books I use to teach them about the nonfiction collection. They always love the story of Phineas and the huge rod that flew threw his brain (don't worry; he lived).

They especially like this picture from the book.

Introducing reluctant readers to this book is one of the fastest ways to convince them that they want a library card. And if that doesn't work, we tell them about the free Internet.

Tomorrow: Why my family's Christmas traditions are better than your family's traditions.

I can see the attraction already.
