A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Little Card thinks he's a birthday card, but it turns out he is a library card!
Washed and watercolored with lots of texture, the non-human illustrations in this book are great. But I wanted MORE from a book about a library card. Perhaps it was the "shushing" in the library, or the wordiness of the book, or just the fact that I feel like this book does not present the face of a modern library. Certainly the concept is great and has the potential to be a super book. Alas, this as a product does not live up to that.
