    great book to encourage reading AND doing

    Do you like to read about things or do them? Or perhaps both? Sam is a mouse who lives in the library and loves to read. One evening, while going on a stroll, he meets a fellow mouse who lives on the other side of the library. Her name is Sarah, and she is an explorer who loves adventure. Sarah would rather climb to the tops of the tallest library shelves and investigate the darkest corners of the buildings rather than to read. Sam is too afraid to climb up high, preferring to research subjects and write about them. Is it possible that the two might be able to help each other? And if so, how?
    Author and illustrator Daniel Kirk's previous books in this series were Library Mouse, which Booklist praised in a starred review as a "show-stopper," and Library Mouse: A Friend's Tale, which have collectively sold more than 125,000 copies. He has also written the "Elf Realm" trilogy for older readers. In Library Mouse: A World to Explore, children will be introduced to "the best of both worlds." They will not only see the importance of reading, researching, and writing, but also be encouraged to get out and experience some of the things which they might read about. Kirk's appealing illustrations, which were made with Windsor and Newton gouache on Arches watercolor paper, help to reinforce the basic message of the book that with teamwork and determination, anything is possible. I give the book two thumbs up!
