The idea of the book is good--to use a story to teach children about the different sections of the library. But, the text and the pictures had some qualities that did not ring true with the public library I use. In this book, titles of books written on the spines of the books are written from bottom to top on most of the books, whereas in my library, they are written from top to bottom, including on the spine of The Library Gingerbread Man . Many of the titles that are on the shelves in the pictures do not seem to belong to the section they are placed in, such as My Big Book of Monkeys in 397.1-389.2. Biographies about Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, and Amelia Earhart are listed as 920 but belong in 973, 305, and 629 in my library. Again, I like the idea of the book, but the execution is lacking.
