" Staff PickRead about one of the pioneers of children's librarianship. Without Anne Carroll Moore, spaces for children might not look the way they do today. Author notes in the back tell the story about other early children's librarians and their efforts to create welcoming spaces for children. " said.

" History of how libraries did not have books or sections for children until Miss Moore created a children's section in the early 1900's. This one would be great for 2nd grade early in the year.Recommend " said.

"Lovely story of how childrens libraries evolved from silently gesturing you would like to borrow a book from a locked shelf to them being a friendly place to find a book that suited you. It really is amazing that in a short period of time, libraries have gone from that to nowadays just being thankful a child has taken out a book. Our library has a poster in the childrens section that shows a book that has been destroyed by a young child saying something like ' don't worry we're just glad you're taking a book out !

This is a lovely simple story, we liked the illustrations and appreciated their folk art style but couldn't help thinking the illustrator had used the paint straight from the tube, I have often told my 11 yr old that the colour that you want is so unlikely to come straighr from the tube you must akways mix, and she has taken this on board. Some more muted colours and perhaps at the end some more photos of childrens libraries through the ages would have turned a four star book to a 5.
" said.

" Yay for children's librarians!! So funny to think that children used to be excluded from the library- when I look around my library and half the floorspace is dedicated to children and youth. " said.

" Loved this story! Of course, I am a little biased, but I think Miss Moore is pretty awesome. :) " said.

" Excellent book on Anne Carroll Moore and her mission to make a space for children in public libraries. Lots of good historical information. Looking forward to sharing this with my class! " said.

" I enjoyed this story about Miss Moore and her vision for children's libraries " said.

" A delightful peek into the early days of children's literature and the birth of youth libraries and librarians. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Anne Carroll Moore and her colleagues, who valued children and their rights to read and visit libraries. " said.
