The head librarian Miss Merriweather has some rather strict rules in her library that include being quite, and no running. Once the lion comes to the library nobody in their is sure what to do because of his size. He ends up being a perfect fit because he is quiet for the most part, and provides a good backrest for the students during story time. This is a very good book for young students as it will not only give them a good laugh, but it also will help them learn that they have to behave well in the library. ( )

I really enjoyed this book due to it's mutli-dimensional message and beautiful illustrations. It was about a lion who enters the library and learns to follow the rules and help out around the library. The message of the story revolves around the lion following the rules of the library including "no running" and "be quiet". Even the lion learns how to follow the rules in order to have fun in the library with his friends. The other children get sad when the lion broke the rules and left. This shows compassion and the importance of following rules. This book would be ideal to read to students in order to discuss following rules in the classroom or library. I also enjoyed the illustrations in this book. The characters are very expressive and relatable. The setting is a public library so students may be able to relate to the illustrations. ( )

A story about a lion lived in a library and obeyed the rules, but one day he broke the rules in order to help his friends. I will use this book in my class because the book shows children that there are rules set in place and some of the rules might change sometimes. I think the grade levels for this book are first grade and up. ( )

This book would be good for teaching students to be quiet in the library but also that there are times where being loud is okay. It would be wonderful for children around kindergarten to first grade. ( )

This story is about a lion who is different than everyone else, but everyone loves him in the end. I would love to read this to me second and maybe even third grade class. I think it has so many good lessons about acceptance, love, and kind gestures.

Book description
An affectionate storybook tribute to that truly wonderful place: the library. Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, is very particular about rules in the library. No running allowed. And you must be quiet. But when a lion comes to the library one day, no one is sure what to do. There aren't any rules about lions in the library. And, as it turns out, this lion seems very well suited to library visiting. His big feet are quiet on the library floor. He makes a comfy backrest for the children at story hour. And he never roars in the library, at least not anymore. But when something terrible happens, the lion quickly comes to the rescue in the only way he knows how.

An affectionate storybook tribute to that truly wonderful place: the library.


Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, is very particular about rules in the library. No running allowed. And you must be quiet. But when a lion comes to the library one day, no one is sure what to do. There aren't any rules about lions in the library. And, as it turns out, this lion seems very well suited to library visiting. His big feet are quiet on the library floor. He makes a comfy backrest for the children at story hour. And he never roars in the library, at least not anymore. But when something terrible happens, the lion quickly comes to the rescue in the only way he knows how. Michelle Knudsen's disarming story, illustrated by the matchless Kevin Hawkes in an expressive timeless style, will win over even the most ardent of rule keepers.
