    One of the better Library alphabet books I've seen; I strongly prefer this to "B is for Bookworm" simply because that one is too complex for the audience. This is a great introduction to the library for kindergartners.

    No AwardsAppropriate grade levels: 1-2This book uses the alphabet to teach children about a library. It tells about different genres of books, as well as how to find a certain book. It could definitely give children the basic knowledge about the different aspects of a library. I think this book is simple, yet helpful. It would be very useful to show kids different aspects of a library, since younger kids wouldn't have had that experience yet. The illustrations are also very cute!You could use this in a classroom to teach the alphabet and also teach students about the different parts that make up a library.

    Alphabet based book with one sentence on each page for something the library has for that letter. Appropriate vocabulary, simple sentneces. Graet way to start a word wall or talk about library services and have a scavenger hunt for all grades.

    This is an okay title for me. Each page has two lines of text and the two page spreads have a rhyme-actually it is a four line verse with second and fourth lines rhyming. Therefore some of the text is rather contrived and the choice for the letter p in my opinion should have been picture book, but instead it is parts of a book. I wanted to like this more, but just couldn't.

    This is an excellent book to read to the class before going to the library for the first time. It is also good for teaching the alphabet. A good project to do after reading this book is having the students make their own alphabet book.

    "L" Is For Library is a nicely illustrated alphabet picture book that could easily be used for storytime or orientation purposes. Most of the most commonly referred to library terms are highlighted here.

    Loved this book...both timely and factual and fun! It uses the alphabet and rhymes to tell what a library is! Would not mind owning this book for my personal library.

    Good introduction to terms that relate to the library/media center. The kids enjoy looking for the cat on each page.

    Cute alphabet book about things in the library. I like how the tabby cat is found on each page. Enjoyed the illustrations as well!

    Good picture book to introduce older children to the different types of materials in the library and how a library is organized.

    Fun way to introduce young students to everything the library provides.

    Basic alphabet book that follows a cat as he leads children through the library. Each letter starting a word that's related to the library (a is for author, b is for book). Some words are a bit of a stretch, such as C is for Caldecott, an art award, but most are simple and act as a good introduction for younger children to the library. Not very exciting, but cute.From SLJ:"The library depicted is warm and inviting, with a multiethnic group of children (and historical figures) obviously enjoying themselves and excited by their surroundings. The illustrations employ a soft but varied palette and are replete with details that add interest and humor to the text. This would make an excellent first-time-in-the-library book, but it will be enticing to children throughout the year as well."

    This alphabet book is a great tool for a rising kindergartner or someone who is ready to start finding things independently in the librarian. With adorable illustrations and simple but precise writing, young people can start to identify genre, parts of the library, elements of books and websites, and other conventions of literacy. The book has great moments of humor, and playful references to canonical children's books and historical events. Though primarily the text is instructional, it can be enjoyed by readers of all ages

    Libraries - yay! Books about libraries - yay! This book - meh...This book had the potential to be awesome! But alas, its rhymes were weak and the attempts at humor were poorly done. All in all it's just a mildly entertaining alphabet book about libraries. Even though there are better alphabet books out there, this would still be a good book to read to a child about to visit the library for the first time.

    My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week. He loves abracadarian books; I love that word. This book had a lot of promise, which was mostly unfulfilled. The text wasn't especially inspired, or funny, and the rhymes were forced most of the time. The illustrations were charming in a Joan Walsh Anglund/Mary Engelbreit sort of way, and they were the highlights of this book.

    Some of the absolute worst verse known to man. The author apparently has no sense whatsoever of what poetic rhythm is ("S is for shelf markers, that help you mark your spot. T is for the thesaurus, which tells you 'warm' is another word for 'hot.'"). It's just painful. Trite and contrived, this book has nothing going for it.

    An ABC book about libraries, this would be a good read-aloud to introduce kindergarteners to the library/media center. Older ones could brainstorm their own ABC lists before listening to the story. During the story, they can see how many of the words they thought of, are included in the book. Are there any important words that weren't included in the book? Children and students can let you know.

    Cute book, but not so good for reading aloud - it's hard to get into a good rhythm with some of the awkward rhymes. Personal connections - the author lives in Mebane and is a school librarian in Hillsborough, NC, and the illustrator went to RISD!

    Nice enough for a themed alphabet book, but nothing special. Did get me thinking about the way things have changed since I was a little one: URL & WWW certainly weren't acronyms *we* needed to know to use a library!

    Of course, I loved it because it's about libraries!

    It's an alphabet book with pretty clear descriptions of things in a library.

    Super cute library alphabet book narrated by an adorable orange cat.

    ABC concept book focused upon library...what's not to love? Illustrations are engaging and details offered in text are varied and helpful.

    An abecedarian (?) with a library theme. Some awkward rhymes, but could possibly please a librarian or kid library-lover. Otherwise, pass.

    A is for author. B is for book. Cute alphabet book and I like books about libraries.

    A great book to teach young children about the library and different types of books.
