Children's LiteraturePart of the "That's Our School" series, this book describes the daily events of Maria Rodriguez who is a school librarian at P.S. 30, Bronx, New York. Morris explains the various duties of a school librarian—such as reading stories, finding information, checking in and out books, ordering books, using computers, and planning special events. As well as depicting the life of a school librarian, this book also gives a little bit of background on Maria Rodriguez. It tells about her family, what activities she enjoys doing with her children, and how she likes to go on vacation with her twin sister. This extra information on Mrs. Rodriguez could help to show readers that their school librarians have lives outside of the workplace, even if all librarians are not Mrs. Rodriguez. The book also has a "Things to Do" section with activities to help readers learn more about librarians. This book is a good choice for readers who are interesting in learning more about a school librarian's job. 2003, Millbrook Press, Ages 5 to 8.
