the library book

“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!”

With nothing to do on a gray, rainy Saturday morning, a little girl takes a trip to her library and encounters a magical surprise (or two) when she delves into some well known and loved children’s books.  Melodic words, undulating text and radiant illustrations bring a joy and playfulness to this celebration of reading, books and our beloved libraries that house them.  

The Library Book is based on a popular song by singer/songwriter Tom Chapin and musician/composter Michael Mark and its sheet music can be found in the book’s endpapers!  Illustrated by Chuck Groenink and published by Atheneum Books for Young Readers.  Out October 3.
