The Library Doors

Summary:

The rhythm of The Wheels on the Bus is the foundation for this story about spending the day in the library. From the traditional "shhh" to using a computer, it's all here in the library!


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Reserve ahead and read this during your child's first trip to the library! By the third page, they'll be singing along with you.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Little Kid Reaction

Our daughter felt she was "too old" for the book, but still liked looking at the pictures. There were a few times when she looked at the page and said "that's what we do at our school."

Parent Reaction

I love this story and the way it uses repetition to reinforce not just the rules for being in the library, but exploring all of the things libraries offer!

Type of Book:
This picture book helps children learn about using the library.
Educational Themes:

Through the repetition of song, kids learn about the library and what librarians do. This is also a book that you can use with first and second graders as an "easy reader" to help them practice reading on pages with a bit more text.

1.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:

Age of child:
Read with an 8 year-old girl.
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy! This is a book you'll want to have handy before your trips to the library. When your child outgrows it, you can donate your copy to their Kindergarten or First Grade teacher.
