Can I Bring Woolly to the Library, Ms. Reeder? by Lois G. Grambling, illustrated by Judy Love, Charlesbridge, 2012.

Children are clever and convincing and comedic and Grambling showcases these qualities in Can I Bring Woolly to the Library, Ms. Reeder? How could a librarian possibly resist having a woolly mammoth in her library? Especially one who would wear fuzzy slippers to quiet the noise he makes when he walks. Or one who could shelve books (even on the tall shelves) or cuddle with the kids in the reading corner (while the library mascot is being repaired). And who better to have around when your bookmobile gets stuck in a snow bank than a woolly mammoth? The watercolor paintings are as clever as the text and ripe with emotion. This book begs to be read over and over again. In fact, you might even find yourself reading it aloud when there aren’t any kids around. For ages 5 on up.

Sounds like a beautiful book. Thanks for sharing this information. I think we’ll have to feature this book in Talking Story!
