Sorry, I don't think libraries are playgrounds, or librarians are babysitters. And I cannot stand faux-childlike illustrations. ( )

yay for librarians dealing with difficult patrons! ( )

This children's book about visiting a library didn't speak to me as much as others have. On the plus side, though, the pictures were colorful and the typeset interesting. ( )

This is book is meant for very little kids. Carlo is a giraffe and he loves to read. One day his daddy brings him and his cat, Crackers, to the library where they meet Mrs. Chinca, the librarian. Carlo isn't too sure about Mrs. Chinca at first but then she shows him all these cool books! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763625264, Hardcover)

In a simple storybook adventure, curious Carlo discovers the joys of the library with the help of a gentle (if toothy) librarian.

Carlo the giraffe is making his first visit to the new library. "Wow!" he says when he sees all the books, the colorful posters, and especially the chairs with wheels. But Carlo is a little afraid of the librarian, Mrs. Chinca, with her sharp teeth and claws, until he learns how much she loves books. With bright illustrations and a cheery text, Jessica Spanyol offers preschoolers a spirited introduction to the library — and a really nice librarian.
