I love this picture book. It tells the story of a class' visit to their local public library. The illustrations give the impression that is an old book, but it is not. (It reminds me of my "Meg and Tim" early readers from first grade.) The multi-ethnic characters let you know that this is clearly a 21st century children's book. It is a very sweet book to read to preK children as they prepare for their first or 101st trip to the library.
