The Boy who was Raised by Librarians


The Boy Who Was Raised by Librarians  was an instant hit in this household. Written by Carla Morris, a long-time children's librarian, the story highlights and glorifies several literary delights this family knows well:

A love of the library.
A love affair with books.
The delight of indulging boyhood curiosity.
The joy of learning.
And the satisfaction in sharing our joys with the next generation.

The illustrations are full of life and humor. The story smiles at itself. If you are a fellow nerdy booklover, you'll see some of yourself in the brainy little protagonist and will undoubtedly find yourself routing for Melvin along with his three librarian friends.

The library may have to hunt us down; my son doesn't want to give it back.
