I.Q. Goes to the Library by Mary Ann Fraser follows the classroom mouse first introduced in I.Q. Goes to School. Here, he is tickled when the school librarian reads a funny book to his class. He returns to the library every day in search of the book she read (meanwhile he learns about the different types of books available there). What he really wants is his own library card so he can check out the funny book for himself. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
PreS-Gr 3-Ever since his first adventure in I.Q. Goes to School (Walker, 2002), the little mouse has had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. He loves learning new things with the students in the elementary school classroom that is his home. In his latest outing, he joins the class as they visit their library during Library Week and learns all about its many resources. Fraser's simple story provides a satisfactory overview of the materials and services available in a contemporary school media center. The book's clean layout and design feature nicely understated but loving details such as thematically consistent endpapers and visual storytelling that begins on the title page. Like I.Q., this winning picture book should find a comfortable home in any school or library setting.-Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
