The Library Book [9780500652602]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Zach isn't convinced that books are for him - they're too long, they're boring and he would rather watch TV. But thanks to his friend Ro's stubborn efforts, Zach falls for books hook, line and sinker, and loses himself in a world of dinosaurs, princesses, pirates, football and rocketships - anything and everything the library has to offer.

The benefits of reading for pleasure are well researched. As well as being linked to academic attainment, reading for pleasure can increase empathy, our understanding of our own identity, and improve mental health. These outcomes are most likely when reading takes place out of free choice. Through lively rhymes and dynamic illustrations, The Library Book helps early readers understand the plethora of books available to them through their local library and encourages parents, guardians and teachers to help children find books that appeal to their personal interests.

Written in a catchy rhyming style by bestselling author Gabby Dawnay, The Library Book will trigger a love of words in readers of all abilities, while Ian Morris' inventive watercolour illustrations - which are reminiscent of two British illustration greats, Quentin Blake and Chris Riddell - make Zach's emotional journey come alive. The combination is a picture book that will inspire a love of libraries, reading, books and words in even the most reluctant reader.
AUTHOR: Gabby Dawnay is the author of over ten books for children, including the bestselling If I had a dinosaur (2017, Thames & Hudson), as seen on CBeebies Book at Bedtime. She is also a regular contributor to OKIDO magazine. Ian Morris is a young illustrator from Manchester, whose mentor is none other than Chris Riddell. Ian has an MA in illustration from the Manchester School of Art and in 2017 was named as one of the top 10 Upcoming Image Makers by the Association of Illustrators. Clients include BBC History Magazine, OKIDO magazine and Prospect magazine.
