    1. One day a lion visits the library He soon discovers he likes story hour in the children s room Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, tells the lion he may return for story hour if he obeys the rules Soon the lion is there everyday to hear the story but also to help at the library One day an accident happens and the lion breaks the rules Are there times when rules are meant to be broken An enchanting book filled with colorful illustrations It introduces children to the joys of the library and wh [...]


    2. What a sweet and touching story The book is about a lion who decides to visit the library and stays He helps out amongst the library staff and the children love him And when someone falls and gets hurt, the lion must decide how to save them even if it means breaking the rules.The book is filled with beautiful pictures and a heartfelt writing style The main characters are each unique and distinct And there is a great message about rules being rules, but that even rules can be broken if there s a [...]




    3. Should a children s book aim to teach important lessons to kids or just exist to entertain This is a false choice and Library Lion shows just how possible it is to do both I loved this book about a lion who falls in love with story time at the library, breaks the rules by roaring in protest when story time is over and is allowed to stay only on the condition that he obeys all of the rules from then on Eventually there is a choice to be made between following the rules and roaring to fetch help f [...]


    4. A lion in the library Well him a chance As long as he s not breaking any rules like roaring in the library , he can stay But what happens when there s a problem, and a friend needs help Is it okay to roar then Hawkes illustrations have an old fashioned, soft, kind of washed out look to them, echoing the idea that the library is a place for muted voices again no roaring Even very young children can read the lion s expressive face and understand how it s feeling at various points in the story I al [...]


    5. This is one of our top five kids books ever My kids are for the most part past the read to me stage but we love this book about a lion in the library so much that it ends up in our house every two to three months or so.


    6. There aren t enough wonderful adjectives in my vocabulary for me to be able to adequately express just how very wonderful the lion is This story has it all excitement, satisfaction, comedy, drama, melodrama, jealousy, suspicion, angst, sorrow, and joy There s a lion In the library


    7. A delightful children s book, with quality illustrations And a moral message too A strict librarian runs a tight ship, and nobody is quite sure what to make of a lion, who likes to be there Turns out that he is a nice addition to the library, especially when things go wrong and he has to break the rules.


    8. Absolutely wonderful I loved it Great for cat lovers and library lovers Please, Library Lion, come to the El Dorado Hills library



    9. I enjoyed the terrific illustrations by Kevin Hawkes they really make the book special I love libraries, lions, and encouraging kids to think for themselves, in addition to learning to follow the rules This book has all that.



    10. I saw a recommendation for this book on I checked it from the library What a lovely children s book The story is so funny and unique The illustrations by Kevin Hawkes are just enchanting I ve always loved to visit libraries from the time I discovered their existence This story of a lion who loves to visit the library is endearing and also has a moral Sometimes it s necessary to break the rules if you have a very good reason I think children should be introduced to this book in their toddler year [...]

    12. love this story about a lion that wanders into a library and listens to story time When story time is over he roars in protest Roaring is not allowed He is only allowed to come back when he promises to come back He becomes an indispensable part of the library One day he breaks the rules He has good reason but Perfect story for teaching about rules and sometimes you may have to break a rule.


    13. A book my 6 yr old as well as my twin 3 yr olds loved A solid reading level 2 book, this cute story keeps all ages engaged with the bright colorful pictures and cute story The illustrations made the lion very lovable, so much so that you just wanted to hug him A great addition to any children s library.


    14. A sweet story, with softly colored illustrations and a gentle yet important message.I was pleased that some segments of this book were pretty dense with text, albeit in a large enough font to still be well accessible to smaller children My 7 year old picked it out from her school library, and it held her steady engagement But it was my studiously rule driven 8 year old who probably got the most out of it The ultimate moral of the story being it s sometimes okay to break certain rules particularl [...]


    15. I m a sucker for any book set in a library But when you add a heart warming story about biases, making friends, and finding your place in a community and I am all for it I m going to buy a son a copy for Christmas Hopefully it will teach him the rules of the library, why they re important and when to understand that friends are important.


    16. I loved every second of this book cats, libraries, beautiful illustrations, and rule following What a wonderful mix of teaching and entertainment Michelle V.


    17. I almost gave this 3 stars bc it was entirely too long for my 19 month old and didn t hold his attention But I figured that s not the book s fault Good book, but definitely appropriate for an older child.


    18. What a fun read My son and I read it together, taking turns I would ask him questions about the plot and he would come up with what he thought about it It was great.


    19. This is a remarkably heartfelt story about a lion coming to a library When the lion first shows up to the library Mr McBee, who runs the circulation desk, is alarmed and tells Miss Merriweather, the librarian, that there is a lion in the library She tells him that this is not against the rules and to leave the lion be Mr McBee is not very happy about this At first the library patrons are very nervous about lion being there, but he follows the rules and is very well behaved The children in partic [...]


    20. I stumbled upon this book after listening to a group of second graders whispering in the halls about how much they d like to have their very own library lion Having never heard of the book, I stopped the students, not to tell them off for talking in the hallway as any trained teacher is supposed to do, but to get a book recommendation I was not disappointed The Library Lion takes place in Miss Merriweather s library She is an extraordinarily strict librarian who prides herself on maintaining ord [...]


    21. As a former library media specialist, I used this book from the recommendation of another media specialist to introduce the expectations in the library A classroom teacher could also use this to help prepare the students before their first library visit.


    22. I ve watched a brilliant video, where Mindy Sterling reads this lovely thing.Check it out HERE, on StorylineOnline s Youtube page Video has illustrations from a book throughout, by the way Which makes the reading experience even cooler This channel and the StorylineOnline children s literacy website in general are my newest discoveries There you can watch and listen to a whole lot of awesome picture books being read to you by amazing actors and actresses including Kevin Costner, Rita Moreno, Ann [...]


    23. This story explores the terrifying prospect of a fully grown male lion gaining entry to a public library However, this lion doesn t eat anyone or cause a major disturbance Instead, he becomes popular with the small children and librarian and does his best to follow the library s many rules The tale allows us to unpick the idea of rules and when and how they should and must be broken A really lovely story for KS1 and early KS2 I read it to my Maths set during storytime and they were rapt.


    24. Library Lion is a beautifully illustrated children s book with a nice message about following the rules I saw online that it is appropriate for ages 4 7, but I think younger kids would appreciate the story and the bright, almost watercolor like illustrations, if the story was read to them I liked how the lion in the story is given human traits dusting books, licking envelopes, etc , so there is a comical side to the story as well I will certainly be giving copies of this book as gifts


    25. After Mrs Zastrow read this book to us, we are arguing about who gets to reread it next That kind of action should tell you just what we thought of this book We LOVED it In class, we are studying how authors end their books This ending is powerful because it made us, the readers glad we read it, making it a reflective ending It was also a happy ending because the lion was able to return to the library Language was repeated a lot about library rules which made it a repetitive ending as well.


    26. I love it The kids love it We re all happy Heck, I don t know what I love most about this story All the library adoration The lion How much the kids adore RAHR ing Or is it the illustrations Seriously if I didn t like reading the Library Lion so much I d just put the darling illustrations of the lion and Miss Merriweather all over my walls.
