    One thought on “Tinyville Town: I'm a Librarian”

    1. First sentence: I'm very good at answering questions. People ask me all kinds of things. I like to help people get the information they need.Premise/plot: This board book is essentially a day in the life of a librarian.Quotes: There's Owen. What's he looking for today? Books about elephants! The search is on! The elephant books are missing! Where could they be?My thoughts: I really loved this one. It's simple but true. I love that the last image is of him reading in bed--he loves a good mystery. [...]

    2. The Tinyville Town librarian is Kevin, a gay man in a relationship. He takes the bus to work. By nature, the librarian is a helpful man good at answering questions and finding the perfect book. Owen is looking for a book on elephants but the elephant books are missing. They are not in the reference section or in periodicals (library “speak” for magazines). Kevin finds them with Anna, who offers to share . . .Each career board book goes through a typical day in the life of a common occupation [...]

    3. My library just got this in and as I was walking by my colleague checking them in I stopped in my tracks. Kevin is totally me right down to the bowtie! This is an incredibly adorable book and one of the best board books that I've seen in awhile. A nice introduction to little ones about librarians and what we do. Highly recommended!

    4. I appreciated this book as it is one of the few "librarian" books that actually comes close to what librarians do all day, which is assist patrons in finding the information they need. A lot of other "library" books for this age group seem to lift library employees out of 50-year-old cartoons.

    5. I wish this came in a picture book format because I would use it for my outreach and class visit story times for pre-schoolers visiting the library for the first time. It is also an excellent picture book for younger readers that have to do "community helpers" projects. As a librarian, I found this adorable book so true to life. People ask me questions all the time even when I'm not at work. I loved that they went with the a man for the main character as male librarians aren't seen much in child [...]

    6. Cute board book that introduces a young reader (toddler) to what a librarian is. The illustrations are bright and colorful with a good use of whitespace. It is part of the Tinyville Town series that introduces young children to different people and professions. Thumbs up. ~The Librarian Uncle

    7. Even though this is a board book this would be wonderful to read for a storytime. This explains wonderfully what a librarian does. This is so much fun.

    8. Oh, I love this one! "I'm very good at answering questions". Definitely will need to check out the rest of the Tinyville Town series too - this one is just too perfect.

    9. File this in the category "be careful what you wish for!" I was looking for books with more diverse characters and along came this book with its adorable portrayal of a male librarian. As most books on my shelves used to be quite dated and used to only show 50-bazillion-year-old white women who seemed to be stuck in the past as the role model of a librarian, I was delighted to see this. (Though I laughed at the notion of only shelving books at the end of the day, if you know what I mean.)Then I [...]

    10. A cute story about a librarian who is good at answering questions. There's a little mini-plot where a patron wants to find a book in the library, so this book doesn't just show what librarians do but also the different places in the library. Clear drawings with lots of diversity, including the librarian answering a question from a man in the bed he just got out of in the morning. It's subtle and some might choose to interpret the man as a woman, but as far as I'm concerned it's a low-key inclusi [...]

    11. Very nice for explaining what a librarian does! Would be good for a pre-kindergarten or kindergarten class.

    12. I like the diversity in this book - a male librarian with perhaps an added twist (is that another male in his bed?) to help us all see with a broader lens.
