The Boy Who Was Raised by Librarians
by Carla Morris
illustrated by Brad Sneed
Melvin goes to the library everyday after school – and at the public library, everyday there’s something new to learn! The three fabulous librarians – Marge, Leeola, and Betty – might not know absolutely everything…but they can get Melvin answers faster than even he can believe. Melvin stays riveted by his library and his dear librarians friends even as he grows up, up, up. But even as Melvin’s questions get trickier, the librarians still have answers. And when Melvin becomes a librarian himself, he responds the same way to those in disbelief of his rapid-fire answers:
We’re librarians. It’s what we do!
A sweet, engaging story with vivid illustrations and a remarkably true-to-life depiction of libraries. Best for Kindergarten-3rd grade, and a true winner for librarians!
