Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
With words set to the well-known rhythm of "The Wheels on the Bus," this independent press title beckons young readers to enter through the school library doors as they swing "Open and shut/ Open and shut…All through the day." Buzzeo (author of The Sea Chest, Dawdle Duckling, and many other picture books) knows this setting inside out, and that is made abundantly clear. The library teacher is friendly and inviting, and the activities in the library are depicted as both commonplace and interesting. The children at the door are the ones who do any shushing. The catalog is up and ready on a very child-friendly computer screen, and the search engines are on. Dinosaurs and fish tanks adorn the bright, cartoon-style illustrations, as does a book-worm that appears on the cover and then again on a poster proclaiming, "Read." This picture book rendering of a class visit to a school library can readily be used for instructional purposes as an orientation text for first-time school library users. A teacher's guide includes a sign language version of the text, as well as numerous teachable moments. Reviewer: Uma Krishnaswami
