Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
The library at Liberty Elementary is a beehive of activity and Mrs. Skorupski keeps a watchful eye on the kids reading, using computers, and lining up to check out one of the "thousands and thousands" of books. New kid, Robert, doesn't believe classmate Carmen when she tells him "our librarian won't tell us anything." When he asks Mrs. Skorupski if she has any animal books she swings into action, tarantula earrings bobbing and rhinestone glasses sparkling. Mrs. Skorupski plunks Robert down in front of the online catalog and commences to teach him how to search for what he wants. It isn't long before she declares Robert a Library Success Story. Robert shows off his newfound skills to Carmen when they are teamed for a research project. With Mrs. Skorupski's guidance, they easily complete all aspects of the assignment. Mrs. Skorupski may not tell her students anything but she sure can teach them. She is the role model for weary elementary school librarians everywhere who are asked a zillion times a day, "where is …" or "do you have any…"(you fill in the blank). Buzzeo's wacky librarian breaks the stereotypical mold and is a true inspiration. This book should be de rigueur in every elementary library. Mrs. Skorupski and her very busy, high tech library create the image we all want of libraries today. A real winner!
