    One thought on “Where Are My Books?”

    1. too soon, man i discovered this book soon after my own post-bedbug book diaspora, where my books were scattered into storage, into my dad's garage, or most distressingly - into the garbagee books in this story go on a far more whimsical and adorable journey and i hope and pray that all the books of mine in the bag that was "accidentally" thrown away are off having an adventure of their own. i miss them. THIS IS MY HEART:

    2. Young Spencer loves his books. Before bed, he and his mom read his favorite, Night Night Narwhal, and then Spencer puts the book away in the same spot he always puts it on his bookshelf. Life is good, until the next morning when Spencer wakes up and the book is gone! He makes due with other titles, but the calamity continues as each night more books go missing. Where are his books?Debbie Ridpath Ohi has created a fresh new book with appealing illustrations and an unexpected twist. Kids will love [...]

    3. Really enjoyed reading with my almost 2-year old that loves squirrels. This book has funny moments (Spencer begrudgingly having a tea party with his sister because he made her cry) and sweet moments (brother/sister/squirrel storytime before bed). Because of this book, my son said "aha!" for the first time :)

    4. Cute story and illustrations. A good introduction on how libraries work (you do, eventually, have to give the books back). Kathryn enjoyed it (we read it 4 times in a row) and I'm kinda envious of Spencer's stuffed Narwhal.

    5. /review/showWhat Jim said. This makes no sense. The pix are cute, the message about borrowing vs stealing is good, but uh huh? whatever.

    6. As mysteries go this one leans a bit too much on a deus ex machina. The solution to the mystery is something that no one could consider while reading and then be surprised as the 'how' unfolds. It's usually a maxim of mystery writing as I understand it, that the perp is available to me as a reader from the beginning. I think Ohi should have dropped some kind of hints about the squirrels in the illustrations (or maybe the text) from the early pages.

    7. Where Are My Books? is so stinking cute! I think Spencer's search for his missing books will appeal to book lovers young and old. Loved the "twist" at the end and the narwhal. I received this book through interlibrary loan through the Mississippi Library Commission from the Carnegie Public Library of Clarksdale and Coahoma County.

    8. Where are my Books? by Debbie Ridpath Ohi – Oh what a darn hilarious book. Enjoyed and chuckled my way through it. My son thought it was a riot as well. So fun to read a picture book where I can’t guess at first who the villian is and when I find out who it is I just laugh and laugh. Fun and fantastic, highly recommended for a read aloud!

    9. If you follow my Instagram or Twitter account at all, you'll know that I'm a big fan of Debbie Ohi's. I think her ability to create art from every day things like food is brilliant, and brings much-needed joy into ordinary things. We finally met at ALA back in June, and she was as delightful as I thought. So when Simon & Schuster kindly sent me her book Where Are My Books?, I couldn't wait to dig in. Ohi introduces us to Spencer, a young boy who loves his bedtime stories. However, one mornin [...]

    10. Rounding up from 2.5-ish. I love books. I was an English major in college. Before my son was born, I averaged 2-3 books a week. So it should come as no surprise that I seek out children's books about books for him (and me, if I'm honest). And I want to love them so.I was disappointed in this book. It's a cute story, but it confused me. The first two-thirds are firmly rooted in reality. Or at least, we're given no reason to think otherwise. Then the book thief is revealed, and Bam!, we're in cute [...]

    11. This is a great read aloud for older preschool and kindergarten students. I use it for my lesson about caring for our books. You could also do it for a book or library themed storytime. Spencer loves books but they keep disappearing from his shelf one by one. It all started with Night-Night, Narwhal and then Tenacious Todd and Send in the Clown Fish among others! He decided to set a trap by wrapping string around a book and then around his stuffed Narwal so when the book was taken off the shelf [...]

    12. Readers are keenly aware of the books they keep in their personal space. Whether they have one set of shelves or several bookcases, each title read or unread is like a treasured friend. Regardless of whatever organizational system is used, if one should become misplaced, the reader knows.Like all good friendships, it's important to stay connected. Where Are My Books? (Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers, May 12, 2015), a debut title both written and illustrated by Debbie Ridpath Ohi is [...]

    13. I picked up this book like I find most books the artwork grabs my attention. While the illustrations were colorful fun and, at times, larger than life, I felt the story was lacking. The plot seemed a little slow and I did not enjoy the conclusion. I was expecting something bigger or more exciting. Although the delivery of this books message was very direct and important and that is don't keep your books all to your yourself, share the joy of reading with others.

    14. Super cute book! Great for kids that are protective of their books. I can't wait to read it to the summer reading group next week. Perfect to help them see how to take care of their books or their library books at home.

    15. Kids are going to love reading Where Are My Books?--Spencer is on the hunt for his missing books and the culprit will have them howling with laughter. Large, vivid illustrations complement the simple text.

    16. A boy sets out to solve the mystery of where his books are disappearing to every night. Definitely had an ending that I didn't expect. Cute story.

    17. More squirrels. Might be a little long for a young audience, but I think I'll try it as a complement to My Cousin Momo.

    18. Where Are My Books? is an adorably whimsical read about a young boy whose books have gone missing. As someone who is quite devastated any time a book vanishes, I can relate to his plight. The ending absolutely charmed me. The illustrations are cute. I would definitely recommend this for anyone in need of a picture book.

    19. Spencer loved to read books, but one by one his books are disappearing. Spencer sets a trap to solve the mystery of his missing books, and who is taking them. He follows the sprung trap and finds his missing books, and a surprise when he discovers who the culprits are.

    20. Where Are My Books? neatly sparks discussions about borrowing and returning library books. The kinders love guessing who's stealing Spencer's books and totally relate to his frustration when he can't find them.

    21. I thought this book was funny. at first i wasn't sure what was going on, but by the end, i was laughing. We borrow almost all our books from the library, but i have a few i can keep at home. i wouldn't like it if they were missing

    22. Spencer loves his books. But one night, his favorite book goes missing! And the next night, another! Who is taking the books?

    23. Super cute. (Spoiler: I can't resist a clever rodent.) Unusual illustrations, great plot, adorable critters. With some library lessons, too.
