Industry Reviews
* "This cheerful picture book opens on a rainy Saturday morning.... Written in 1989, with upbeat lyrics, natural-sounding rhymes, and a catchy tune, the song “The Library Song” creates a surprisingly good text for a picture book. The words can be read aloud easily, as the cadence is evident when the words are spoken, but the effect is more magical when the words are sung (the tune is readily available online). Groenink...magically brings the song to life on the page through his pleasing pencil-and-digital artwork. From the rainy-village street scene to the library interiors to the child’s cozy bedroom, the pictures are well structured and full of intriguing details for children to find and enjoy. Fun for story hours and satisfying for reading one-on-one."
