Mehso-so

The Midnight Library is a very cute book about a little girl who runs a library for animals during the night. Her assistants are owls and throughout the book she solves problems and creates solutions. This book was only so-so for me because although I found it to be intriguing I didn‘t find much of a teaching moment or deeper meaning.

The Midnight Library uses only purple, yellow, and black to create their images. This creates a nighttime and almost spooky feel. This allows for readers to see the pictures in a very simplistic format. This book never seems to use straight lines within their drawings. Even the book shelves seem to twist and turn on the page creating a very dynamic image.

The Book Hog | Greg Pizzoli

Pickpick

The Book Hog written and illustrated by Greg Pizzoli tells the tale of a pig who learns to read. It is a story that may make a student feel less scared and alone if they can‘t read. The book hog will grab any book he can get his hands on because he loves the way they look and feel but he can‘t read. A librarian teaches him how fun reading can truly be.

The Book Hog | Greg Pizzoli

The Book Hog is great book for any young classroom. It would make a great read aloud. The illustrator uses a pallet of mainly pink blue and gray tones to create their images. The pictures through out this book do an amazing job of portraying the emotions on non human characters in a way that will connect to the story and be relatable to children.

“He grew to love books even more, not just for the way they looked and felt… but for the stories they told.”

After looking at this on my shelf for far too long, I listened to it on Libby. Interesting arguments for building & supporting social infrastructure (like public libraries, parks, etc) as they will help save lives in times of crisis and curb crime rates by building communities…. And also work to help the planet in light of climate change. A bit disorganized in the presentation… and not nearly enough on the affect of systemic racism in all of this
