Former teacher Sue Barnett is currently displaying her collection of Storybook character toys at the Back Mountain Memorial Library during the month of October. Barnett has been collecting these toys, including little Golden Books, puppets and stuffed animals related to Storybook characters for approximately 50 years. She began her collection because she loved teaching reading and introducing literature to young children. She adds that including a toy in her lessons made it more interesting. Some of her favorite pieces in the display include Peter Rabbit, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the Hat Hedgehog. Barnett resides at the Dallas Masonic Village.
