Tomas and the Library Lady by Pat Mora, illustrated by Raul Colon

Rating: ★★★★1/2

Genre: Children’s literature

Medium: Hardcover

Synopsis: Tomas goes to the library, and the librarian there introduces him to all sorts of books to keep his summer occupied.

Review: Speaking as a library school student, I’m a total sucker for this book.  With Mora’s great narration and Colon’s wonderful illustrations, this is a story that absolutely pulls at my heartstrings.  I mean, what could be better than a librarian and a boy bonding over book recommendations and spending a long, hot summer inside a library?  Nothing, I tell you.  This book is perfect for reading on summer nights, and definitely perfect for long road trips or vacations.  It’ll certainly spur on a want to read.
