Author: Georgette Noullet

Illustrator: David Slonim

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Pinwheel Books, an Imprint of Marshall Cavendish, 2011

Material: hard cover

Summary: Time for lights out! Just as Bailey (the dog) is about to settle in, he gets pushed out of bed. He travels from room to room trying to find the best place to get some shuteye. This nearly wordless picture book gives young readers a chance to tell the story.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, read aloud book

Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 6; read yourself: 4 to 7

Interest Level: 2 to 6

Young Reader Reaction: Review pending.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a cute story. The illustrations are sweet and they do a great job showing the events as Bailey moves from one room to the next. There is very little text, and what is there is simple enough for new readers to practice reading.

Pros: Cute illustrations and a sweet story make this a nice selection for bedtime. This is a picture book that can "double" as an easy reader.

Cons: None

Borrow or Buy: Buy. This has the potential for a long shelf life. First to be shared with toddlers, then later as an easy reader.


Educational Themes: This is a bedtime story for sharing. What little text there is, is very simple and makes this a nice choice as an easy reader for kids building their basic word bank.

Notes: The publisher donated a copy of this book knowing that we would consider it for review and provide an independent, unbiased profile. This book will be given to a nonprofit to help readers in need.

Literary Categories: Fiction - picture book, animal characters, humor, easy reader
