The Library Book
Tom Chapin and Michael Mark
Illustrated by Chuck Groenink
Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2017
From the dust jacket, “The rain is pouring, Dad is snoring, and the same old stuff is on TV-boring. What is there to do today? Go to the library, of course! Who will we find there?
“Charmingly illustrated and based on the catchy “Library Song” by Tom Chapin and Michael Mark, here is an affectionate, exuberant, uproarious celebration of – SHHHH! – libraries!”
Any book about libraries, we, here at the LoC absolutely love!! In this book a young girl goes to the library and meets all sorts of friends there while she decides who to take home. It starts first with Winnie the Pooh but then Madeline wants to go home with her. Then The Cat in the Hat, Pinocchio, the Cheshire Cat, Babar and Cinderella all join in clamoring to go home with her. Suddenly more and more books are shouting “Take me home!” Which one will she take? We won’t tell!
Rating 5 out of 5 paws because any book that champions libraries and reading is the best kind of book!!!!
