Books, books, books, Lila Lou loves books. In Lila Lou’s Little Library by Nikki Bergstresser, we meet Lila Lou. Her house is filled from top to bottom with books. Her Mom thinks she has too many books so Lila Lou comes up with a plan to share her books. She gathers up her supplies and heads outside with her Mom. They work together to turn a stump into Lila Lou’s Little Library. At first, it doesn’t attract much attention, but Lila Lou gathers her friends and neighbors and explains the wonders that books hold. Soon her little library is bustling with borrowers and lenders.
Lila Lou’s Little Library is a love story about books and reading. Nikki Bergstresser has some wonderful suggestions for parents at the beginning of the story about how to engage with their child while reading. She also includes some great suggestions at the end of the story about creating your own library space at home. Sejung Kim has drawn Lila Lou full of enthusiasm, with her big round glasses and bouncy ponytail. Sharp-eyed readers will notice that some of the book titles and items around her house are in Spanish. There is a Spanish glossary at the end of the book. Lila Lou is a spunky, creative little girl who kids will relate to. Lila Lou’s Little Library is a wonderful tribute to the value of books it also shows kids the value of sharing their abundance with others. Lila Lou’s Little Library will encourage kids to seek out the little libraries in their neighborhoods.
