I read this book aloud to my daughters the other day, and was hit with a strong feeling of nostalgia. I have no idea when or where I read this book as a kid, but it clearly made an impact if just looking at the first page brought about such a visceral response. I love that, for Rosa, the symbol of maturity is the ability to borrow and be responsible for her own library books. I also like the idea of getting a library card as a rite of passage. We have a family rule that a child can have a library card when she can write her own name, and it was nice to see Rosa working so hard to reach that goal. The other thing I love about the book is the scenes from daily life in 1950s New York City: kids playing double dutch, running in the water from a fire hydrant, and walking to the library unaccompanied.
