I really liked this book because it was very entertaining. I would use this book for a younger grade because it is a simpler book. ( )

The library lion is taught to help the librarian by being trained to be quiet and not run in the library but when someone is in trouble he disobeys the rules to help save the librarian. This is a great lesson for kids to follow rules but in certain situations to do what is best for others. ( )

Not suitable for reading aloud to a group, but a great one-on-one story to read to a child (preschool & elementary). ( )

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.
