Raccoon and his friends are upset when their librarian tells them the library is going to close. With each obstacle, they look to a book to learn solutions. They raise money by selling things and even help find a new place for their beloved library. Great teamwork and reading solve each problem they encounter.
Colorful pictures add to this story about books within a book that shows how you can study and learn new things.
My daughter picked this book because it was on the new books shelf and was about a library, and that is is her favorite place to visit. She liked the different ways the animals helped. She enjoyed how they read up on things and then went and did what they had just learned about. She said she liked the pictures they were very colorful and made her want to jump in the book with the characters.
I enjoyed how the animals worked together and how they learned things by reading ... not by watching TV!

Read with a 5-year-old girl.
Borrow, at least. This is a good choice for any library, as it teaches teamwork and helping others, not to mention what you can learn at the library!
