Our Library by Eve Bunting

Our Library by Eve Bunting is one of my favorite children's books. As a librarian, who loves animals and children's book, this book is very near and dear to my heart.

The story is about Miss Goose the librarian, announcing that the library will close forever and raccoon and his band of merry friends take matters into their own hands to keep their beloved library open. It shows the power of determination and teamwork!

I love the following and know that it is true in any situation... especially when faced with library closings in this sad... very sad economy!

"Gopher lies on the grass and kicks up his legs.'There's nothing you can't learn to do when you have books,' he says. Porcupine smoothes down her quills. 'If you can read,' she adds."

This well-written children's book with colorful, bright, and cheery illustrations is a must read for younger children of all ages. It is not only winner for children, but will bring a smiles to adult faces as well!

Best read on a rainy or cold and snowy day with a cup of hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows or the occasional spot of tea with just the right amount of creme and sugar for the tea lover in all of us! What a wonderful treat!!!!!!!!
