Using the lyrics to Tom Chapin and Michael Mark’s “The Library Song,” this picture book celebrates the magic of reading and of libraries.
It has been decades since I first heard “The Library song”. I loved it immediately. I’m so glad that they decided to turn it into a book!
After presenting the book to a group, it could be fun to ask the kids which book characters they heard mentioned in the song.
