A fun story about the animals and red knit cap girl working together to create a library. Great illustrations and easy-to-read prose. Great for K-2 read-aloud or story time. ( )

Found browsing at the Fox Library. Too long for an infant's attention span but great for older readers! The illustrations are paint on plywood, which is an interesting look, and it's a charming story. Would be perfect choice to put in a Little Free Library! ( )

The best part is the illustrations, done on plywood, with the grain showing to give the landscape texture. ?
The second best part is the concept. ?áOf course I love to share books and would love to have a library in the forest with my wild friends.
But, unfortunately, most people tend to avoid libraries. ?áSome of us avidly use them, sure. ?áBut some folks around here don't know where they are, some folks (in a survey on goodreads) admit they never use theirs, Bookcrossing isn't even close to its 'tipping point,' and I've seen only one other person interested in the local Little Free Library.

But hey, maybe this book will turn kids onto the concept. ?áI'll mention it in my BookCrossing profile and Zone and see if anyone catches on... one can dream, no? ( )

This new adventure with Red Knit Cap Girl and her friends uses simple prose and radiant illustrations to shine a light on the joy of reading and the importance of working together.

One day Red Knit Cap Girl and her friends discover a hollow tree in the middle of the forest. What can be done with one ordinary tree? "I will keep my book in this nook so everyone can read it," Red Knit Cap Girl says.

But the tree isn't only for books. Little by little, one by one, the animals share their unique gifts and turn the ordinary tree into a special spot for everyone to enjoy!
