PreS-Gr 3–In this fourth installment of the “¡Vamos!” series, Little Lobo and his friends are going to the library where there is a book festival, and everyone in the community is coming to help. Little Lobo and his friends learn about all the amazing things that go on at libraries: there are classes in English, puppet-making, or studying for tests. There are computers that can be used to develop websites, do research, or learn how to grow corn. The librarians are the guardians of an exciting world of information that is available to everyone for free. The highly detailed cartoon-style and exuberant artwork feels both modern and familiar at the same time. The pictures are labeled in English and Spanish, allowing readers to practice both languages with plenty of visual support for comprehension. Mexican American culture is highlighted, and the description of services and materials makes the entire book feel like a party for literacy and libraries. Readers are going to love poring over the pictures over and over again to find details they missed on previous readings. This book is a gift that can be opened over and over again.
VERDICT Every library needs this book. It’s a wonderful reminder of why libraries matter.
