Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

Ahhhhhh.... like to build a dream library of your very own?  What  kind of library would you create? This book is all about an imaginative library one little girl builds with the help of her friends.  A million stories high?  Noooo problem. The sky is the limit when you have a giant friend to help out.  Her magical home for books is filled with floofy chairs, gigantic water slides, tall ladders, a bathtub, trained dragons, an unlimited ice cream bar and teeny, tiny nooks for fairies to curl up and read their favourite stories. 

The illustrations make the text almost animated.  They are colourful, fun, engaging and busy.  This book would be a great conversation starter as to what your child would include in their library if they created one.  The book celebrates the love of libraries and of reading.  I highly recommend it.
