Book Tuesday: Library Lion

Bonjour! Hope your first week of school is getting off to a good start. Ours is going well so far, which is good. We were worried there would be a bit of anxiety over the new teachers, but so far, kids are adjusting well. Fingers crossed for more.

As to the book, I thought I'd mention one of our favorite children's books, Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen.

This is is a wonderful book that tells the story of a lion who loves to come to the library. But, when he roars, he scares the customers, so the head librarian tells the lion that he must not roar or he will have to leave the library. The lion, who loves the library storytimes and padding around, then becomes a quiet, helpful lion. However, when disaster strikes, the lion has to make a choice about how to help.

It's a very sweet book, with wonderfully endearing illustrations by Kevin Hawkes. If you haven't seen this book before, check it out. It really is lovely.
