Bunny’s Book Club by Annie Silvestro, illustrated by Tatjana Mai-Wyss

Published by Doubleday Books for Young Readers

Summary:  Bunny loves summer story hours, but when fall comes, story time moves inside.  Bunny’s not sure animals are welcome in the library, so he decides to try to sneak in at night.  After some investigation, he discovers that the book drop provides a handy entryway into the library.  He helps himself to a big stack of books, which he takes back to his burrow.  When Porcupine drops by, he’s intrigued by all Bunny’s books, so Bunny lets him in on his secret.  Before long, it’s a secret no longer, and Bear, Mouse, Frog, and a host of others are using the book drop.  Everyone’s having such a good time one night, that they don’t hear the librarian turning the key in the door.  They’re caught red-handed, but luckily, the librarian’s solution is to give each one of them a library card and turn them loose among the bookcases.  The final two pages show Bunny’s Book Club, every animal cozily reading, surrounded by teacups and cupcakes.  40 pages; ages 3-7.

Pros:  An inviting introduction to the library and having your own library card.  The pictures are adorable.

Cons:  Bear’s trip through the book drop looks pretty uncomfortable
