Homer is a well-behaved housecat. He lives with a "quiet lady" in a "quiet house". One day, Homer was alone at home when a loud noise scared him. He jumped out the window, and ended up wandering around town for a good while. When Homer got all the way to the library, he found the nice quiet lady. Homer decided that after such a noisy day, the library is where he wanted to stay. All the children loved him!
This book is filled with rhymes, so it's easy for young children to follow along. A great book for reading to students in the classroom or library! ( )

No library should be without a Homer. ( )

Homer is a cat accustomed to quiet at home where he lives with a quiet lady. One day, he ends up outside and finds noise almost everywhere he goes. He eventually finds his way into a quiet building, the library, where he also finds his owner the quiet lady reading to children. Needless to say, he becomes a library cat. It's a cute rhyming book with illustrations that fit the tone of the book. ( )

NCLA Review: HOMER THE LIBRARY CAT is a delightful children's book for ages 4 and up. Ms. Lindbergh wrote the book using rhyming text pairs telling the story of an orange tiger cat that likes quiet. However, one day he hears a loud noise and out the window he dives. He then searches all over town for a quiet place. The library provides just that and his owner, the quiet lady, reads stories to children. He then goes there every day. Reeve Lindbergh is the daughter of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. She has written other children's books. Anne Wilsdorf's illustrations complement this book purr-fectly. They are bright, cheerful and eye catching. A great addition for any church library if you have a budget that allows for secular children's books. Rating: 4 —BS ( )
