What did you like about the book? This is an adorable Miffy story about the library.  Miffy and her friend Grunty go to the library and help Aunt Alice stamp books and put books away.  They put them in the wrong spots, so Aunt Alice shows them the right way to do it.

The illustrations are adorable!  They are the classic Bruna pictures which are so simple yet beautifully done.  These books are great for everyone!

Anything you didn’t like about it?  There is nothing I didn’t like about this book.

To whom would you recommend this book?  I would recommend this to kids who are learning to read.  Some read-a-likes are books about Pocoyo and, of course, the Miffy series of books by Dick Bruna.

Who should buy this book? children’s libraries, preschools, elementary schools

Where would you shelve it? juvenile easy reader

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
