The Midnight Library by Kazuno Kohara (published Roaring Book Press), 2014.  

This picture book is interesting in that the illustrations printed (or appear to be) in an “old-fashioned” three color printing press style.   The story is engaging for my four-year-old son who already loves libraries and animals.  The library in this story is open from midnight to dawn, and everyone has a grand time.   The Little Librarian even finds a room for the band of squirrels to practice their music.   It is a story that my son has wanted us to read aloud every day for the last week. 

My four-year-old says the following about this book: “This is a library book.  It is about a little Librarian.  Three owls.   They help the Librarian. My  favorite page is when the library gets noisy from the music.” 

We highly recommend this book.
