This book is perfect for primary school libraries and all librarians, whether in school or not... A joy of a book and a worthy addition to any primary school library.
School Librarian||A compelling volume for encouraging both literacy in its widest sense, and books and libraries in particular.
Ibby Link||This ingenious book, with Judy Sierra's lively rhyming text, makes reading look fun - always a good thing. Marc Brown's bright cheerful pictures are full of little gems.
Carousel||A clever librarian quickly attracts a crowd when she launches the mobile library by reading aloud from Dr Seuss. â_~In a flash, every beast in the zoo was stampeding / To learn all about this new something called reading.â_T There are fat books and thin books, funny books and sad books â_" something for everyone. Soon, all the animals are not only reading but writing too. An entertaining and inspiring introduction to books.
Book Ahead 0-7||This beautifully illustrated paperback uses some highly imaginative and amusing rhyming text to tell the story of a mobile library which visits the zoo by mistake and soon instills the reading (and writing) bug in all the animalsâ_¦ This story certainly reinforces the message that there are books to suit all tastes and that everyone will find something they love when they step into a library.
