A B C Letters in the Library by Bonnie Farmer. Illustrated by Chum McLeod. Book Review.

This book goes through the letters of the alphabet relating them to things in the library such as dictionaries , encyclopedias, volunteers, and story time. H is the librarian going sh. T is the teacher going tsk at loud teens who shrug in response.

There is no story and the tone is generally serious. I was hoping for a bit of humor. We found this book rather dull and a bit stereotyped. I can see a librarian using it to introduce children to the library but there must be other, more fun books out there to choose from.

 The pictures are quite nice with skinny body people who have large heads with tiny eyes. They are imposed on a white background. It is unfortunate that the artist did not introduce a story line, something more compelling, or at least something humorous. This is an okay alphabet book but rather lackluster.
