I wanted to love this, as the illustrations are adorable and I mean, I‘m going to school to become a librarian. But the rhyming is just off, and the children‘s librarian shushes the character, and all the books she reads are good, but non-diverse. This just could have been so much better.

I‘ve been reading this book at the local elementary school all week. It‘s the illustrated version of a song you won‘t be able to unhear once you have it stuck in your head: https://youtu.be/qjyg-6Sd91A

It‘s cute, but not my favorite, and the illustrations of copyrighted characters like The Cat in the Hat and Curious George are so changed as to be unrecognizable to the kids. Worth a read, but not my favorite #kidlit about #libraries

UrsulaMonarch Agreed! I had t thought about why some characters were changed so much, but the copyright makes sense! Thanks! 8mo

Then, among the messiness, we have the top priorities - the library books and a few ARCs. The ARCs on the second shelf that are stacked are to take to work to share with coworkers. The ARCs on top shelf are Jodi Picoult, Hank Green, and Holly Black's newest, and I must make time for them!

It's written like a song, with a sort of chorus, and I couldn't really get a feel of the rhythm so this read really harsh to me. I do like that it's about a library and books though ?

Apparently, it's "Library Song" by Tom Chapin off his album Moonboat. I'll have to Google to hear this.
