If you want to give children a look into some if not all the things a librarian does, you’ll definitely want to pick up a copy of Check It Out!: Reading, Finding, Helping by Patracia Hubbel and illustrated by Nancy Speir. This delightful hardcover title features bright and cheerful full page spread illustrations that appealed to my children ages 3 & 5 years old quite a bit. The book is written in rhyming way which makes the flow go along quite well whether if you are reading or listening!
What are some things covered that librarian is known to do that is mentioned in this book? Well, for one you’ll see her helping children locate books, fixing the books with glue and tape, helping children check out books of all kinds, planning parties, researching books in the news, reading books to the children, and more! There’s really never a dull moment! Exciting, engaging, and a lot of fun to read!
I loved this title and think it would be great story to pull out when teaching social studies in school or at home. Who knows maybe it will inspire a child to want to grow up and be a librarian themselves!
