Great way to introduce how special a library card is and how to use the card. This book is fabulous for the first week of school for your new library patrons.
From School Library Journal:
Little Card mistakenly believes himself to be a birthday card and goes off to train at birthday card school. He loves the parties, cakes, and singing, so he is disappointed when the mistake is corrected and he is delivered to the job he was actually destined for. After being shushed for yelling, "Happy Birthday" in the library, he is given to a little girl as her first library card. He loves his girl and absolutely everything about the library. There are games, snacks, and fun, colorful books. The best part is that while a birthday comes only once a year, the library is open year round and any day can be a library day. Illustrations are ink wash with some digital coloring. Little Card is expressive and endearing, and in some instances, his exuberance can barely be contained. VERDICT A good addition to library-themed story times.
