One day, the library's bookmobile makes an unplanned stop at the local zoo. Molly the librarian finds that the animals love reading. They devour books (sometimes literally). Their love of reading encourages a love of writing. Soon every animal at the zoo is an author. The animals' voracious love of books necessitates the building of a zoobrary.

What I thought: What a delightful book! The language is pleasing and the pictures are colorful. This is an imaginative way to introduce children to the delights of reading. Sierra and Brown dedicate the book to Dr. Seuss. I can hear him in the language of the book and see him in the illustrations. A fitting tribute and a great book. Every librarian should have a copy. This one's going on my to buy list.
