WellRead Kids July Selection: Leilong the Library Bus by Julia Liu
A library-loving picture book in which an enthusiastic dinosaur absorbed in storytime threatens to flatten the library—until the children decide to take the books outdoors.
The children are late for storytime at the library. Ever helpful, Lei the enthusiastic dinosaur can get them there on time! Lei's small head is the only part of him that fits so he must listen through the window. But he gets so excited by the story, he starts to shake the building. Lei's love of stories risks destroying the library until the children decide to take the books outdoors. Translated from Chinese, this library-loving picture book reminds us how it feels to be transported by story. And what first seems a problem for Lei the dinosaur becomes a triumph.
