Toddler-PreS–Lemay's cheerful artwork depicts a group of babies and adults engaging in a variety of activities during a library visit. The illustrations elaborate on Puck's enthusiastic text, as on the spread where "The children's section is a favorite spot . . . where babies and older children have tons of things to do," showing the tots watching a wall-mounted screen, playing with blocks and manipulative toys, and choosing and reading books. The text celebrates the elements of a library visit, from storytime and puppet shows to checking books out to enjoy at home. Some tips and activities are appended, although those reading aloud will want to note that the caregiver-directed introductory text for that spread uses the exact same font and placement as the child-directed text on the previous pages, making it easy to accidentally continue reading aloud. VERDICT Recommended for caregivers to use in discussing the steps of a library visit with their little one.—Amanda Foulk, Sacramento Public Library
