Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Five short chapters provide basic information about librarians. Librarians help people find good books to read and information about almost anything. They help people use computers and teach them how to check the online catalog to find a book. They also show kids how to play reading and math games on the computer. They sometimes help with homework. People studying to become United States citizens can find help in the library. Librarians choose books to read aloud during story times. They select books to order for the library. Librarians work in school and public libraries and in book mobiles. They help people check books out. Colorful photographs depict librarians and children from a variety of cultural backgrounds. A "Be a Community Helper!" page presents suggestions for using the library and taking care of materials checked out. Four "Words You Know" include pictures and labels. Includes an index and a website to consult for more information. A good introduction to librarians for young children. Part of the "Rookie Read-About Community" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
