Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Big Bird discovers that the book he wants to buy in the bookstore (All About Birds costs more than he has, so the bookseller wisely sends him off to the library. From there, the story falls mostly into a question-and-answer format, as Big Bird discovers that libraries have records, cassettes, story hours, films, arts-and-crafts sections and even (at this branch, anyway) toys and a cozy corner. Grover is the other Sesame Street star to put in an appearance in the book, which seems fairly heavy on text for its young slant. Apart from a strictly utilitarian approach and the fact that Big Bird shouts in the library and no one hushes him, this is a fairly straightforward sequel to A Visit to the Sesame Street Hospital and A Visit to the Sesame Street Firehouse. But for readers who aren't diehard Big Bird fans, Gail Gibbons's Check it Out! might be a better first look at libraries. (36)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 A bland advertisement with typical Sesame Street illustrations and text for a facility that may exist only on television. When Big Bird doesn't have enough money to buy the books he wants, he discovers the public library. His friend Grover initiates him to the delights of the Children's Room. Big Bird is issued a library card and checks out the book he came to find. All possible services are available at the Sesame Street Library. While toys, an origami workshop, festivals, and squashy pillows in a listening corner are fun, they are not the realistic or essential ingredients of many public libraries, and young children may find their expectations not met. A better introduction to a public library is Gibbons' Check It Out! (HBJ, 1985). Marguerite Lewis, Glenmont Elementary School, N.Y.
