Children's LiteratureThis slender volume introduces the youngest school-aged reader to the workday of a familiar person, the local librarian. A clever format utilizes simple questions and answers about what goes on in a library and well-organized photos of a librarian at work on an hour-by-hour basis, beginning before the library opens and ending as she cleans her desk and turns off her computer in the evening. "Fun facts" are interspersed throughout the text, and a final photo shows typical library equipment clearly labeled. A useful glossary, short age-appropriate bibliography and a suggestion for a website that links youngsters to further facts about library work are all included, as well as a short index. A clear, simple exposition of a complex and interesting career, this attractive book is a valuable research tool for young readers. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
