This is Lottie Paris’s best day, why? She is going to her best place, the library. Lottie knows that at her best place there are rules she must follow. You cannot yell, dogs are not allowed and you cannot color inside or outside the lines of a book. While looking for her favorite books on planets and stars she meets a new friend, Carl. Believe it or not Carl’s best place is also the library. He has also learned that you do not blow bubbles in the library, eating yogurt while looking at a book is not a good mix and you should not read books under the table while pretending that everyone’s feet are dinosaur snacks. Guess what happens? The library is not only the best place to be but the best place to meet friends.
I really enjoyed Lottie Paris and the Best Day. I agree with Lottie Paris, “the library is the best place to be”. It was also great to see an author mention some of the rules of the library. Rules that hopefully will be read out loud in story times as well as talked about by a caregiver and a child.
