Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-An endearing orange tabby leads children on an alphabetical tour of the library. Rhyming couplets that for the most part flow nicely give readers an overview, with equal emphasis on print and nonprint resources, fiction, nonfiction, and reference. "C is for the Caldecott,/awarded for art that pleases the eyes./D is for the Dewey Decimal System,/which helps us organize." The feline is accompanied by the ducklings from Robert McCloskey's classic Make Way for Ducklings, who perch on the cat's head as it peruses magazines, make xerox copies of their webbed feet, and otherwise cavort in amusing ways. The library depicted is warm and inviting, with a multiethnic group of children (and historical figures) obviously enjoying themselves and excited by their surroundings. The illustrations employ a soft but varied palette and are replete with details that add interest and humor to the text. This would make an excellent first-time-in-the-library book, but it will be enticing to children throughout the year as well.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Very highly recommended

    Featuring charming illustrations by Nicole Wong, 'L' Is For Library by Sonya Terry is an unusual alphabet book designed for children preschool through the second grade and has as the setting, a local community library. The 'guide' is an orange tabby cat and children will follow the kitty through the whole A to Z alphabet, all within in the context of what boys and girls have commonly encountered in library visits of their own. 'L' Is For Library fully engages young readers as they have fun throughout the learning process. 'L' Is For Library is very highly recommended for all beginning and young readers interested in their library, as well as for parents, teachers, and librarians as effective and fun learning tool for their young charges.
