    Wonderful Book!

    I read this book to the children at my son's elementary school (K-3) during our Parents As Reading Partners programs. It has a wonderful message and the children loved it. The great part about it is that it not only encourages the children to read all types of books but it encourages them to write and illustrate all differernt types of stories themselves as well and can be a great class project.

    I always browse the shelves at my local library, waiting for a title to whisper read me.  I have read some terrific books with this method.  Library Mouse is one of those books!  This adorable book celebrates writing and the author in all of us.  When my son was four, his preschool teacher taught them how to make a book and encouraged them to make books all day, every day.  This was continued by his kindergarten teacher;  He flourished in an environment where he was treated like an author.  This book tells the story of Sam who does not doubt his abilities but instead writes mouse-sized books and places them around the library he lives in.  He believes that anyone can be an author and created an environment that encouraged writing. 




    This book would be a wonderful introduction to bookmaking for young students (preschool - kindergarten) as well as encouraging older students (first - fourth) to write.




    The illustrations are vibrant and so very detailed.  For a lover of books, the idea of living in a library is certainly appealing!  Library Mouse is the first in a series of books by Kirk and I am looking forward to reading them!

    Sam was very happy living in the library. He had all kinds of books to read every night when the library was quiet. Sam decided that he should write a book of his own and he wrote “Squeak! A Mouse’s Life” and put it on the shelf in the autobiography section of the library. His book was a huge hit with the kids at the library. In fact, Sam decided to write more books. Soon after, all the kids at the library want to meet the author of the great books mysteriously showing up at the library! Sam couldn’t let them know it was a mouse doing the writing and he hatches a plan to show every kid that they can be the author!

    Why I liked this book – This is a very cute book about how anyone can be an author. I love that kind of positive message! Sam is a very clever mouse. He has a lot of common sense and a great imagination (and he loves books). I like that in the illustrations we see Sam as dressed up like the characters of the book he just wrote. Like in his delivery of his mystery, he is dressed like a detective. It is a great book that encourages kids to use their imaginations and write their own stories!
    **NOTE I bought my own copy of this book at a festival

    Excellent Book...

    This is an amazing book.

    I can read it to my son over and over again and neither of us will be bored.

    It is educational and fun at the same time. Just because of this book, my son discovered that he could tell great stories even at age 4.

    As for the cover art and illustrations; I have all great stuff to say, too. We own the hardcover version and it is beautiful. The pictures are so realistic, looks like the mouse is going to jump right out of the book:-)
