About the Book: It's a book-but there's a hole in it! Sometimes it's an eye, sometimes a face, sometimes a place-use your imagination to discover what's inside!

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I'm in love with Herve Tullet's Press Here which I constantly sing the praises of to my library patrons. So when a co-worker first showed me The Book With a Hole, I was excited to find a picture book that would work great with tweens.

On each page is a different scene-a swimming pool, an animal, a basketball hoop. Sometimes you have to draw things to go behind the hole to complete the scenes. Sometimes you can hold the book up to your face and complete the picture. It's interactive all with imagination which makes it stand out. You get to be part of the story. I can see tweens having a blast with this book and it would be great to share with a group of all ages. I think you could also use this as a fantastic story starter for tweens in English class. Who knew a book with a hole could be so much fun?

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
