Coffee, coffee, coffee

drinking coffeeI’ve been spend­ing a good amount of time in cof­fee shops late­ly, work­ing. It’s iron­ic for me to be grab­bing Wi-Fi juice in these ubiq­ui­tous icons of con­tem­po­rary soci­ety — I haven’t ever tast­ed cof­fee. The whirring and smells and steam and ded­i­cat­ed caf­feine hunters make it a chal­lenge for me, but I’ve always been com­fort­able with xeno­bi­ol­o­gy.

Seek­ing to relate my world to Cof­fee World, it occurred to me that cof­fee shops are miss­ing chil­dren’s books. There are toys on hand in some places, but books are con­spic­u­ous for their absence.

How to inter­est cof­fee shops in stock­ing chil­dren’s books? Steve and I had fun dur­ing a long car trip com­ing up with remakes of clas­sic chil­dren’s books:

- The Lit­tlest Cof­fee Drinker of All

- Harold and the Pur­ple Cof­fee Cup

- Where the Wild Caf­feina­dos Are

- Blue­ber­ry Scones for Sal

- The Choco­late Lat­té Wars

- Dinky Hock­er Shoots Caf­feine

- Kit­ten’s First Mocha

and the book I would buy imme­di­ate­ly:

- Make Way for Bar­ris­tas

I’m just sayin’.

How about you? What titles do you nom­i­nate as cof­fee-hon­or­ing remakes?
