Product Details

Praise

Not much in life holds the mystique of a child’s first library card, and this book celebrates that lovely milestone. In Harper’s clever story, Little Card, a cute sneaker-clad fellow with ­expressive eyebrows, is all set to be a birthday greeting, until he’s sent instead to become the library card of a girl named Alex…as the library’s wonders are revealed, it becomes clear that even if it’s not a birthday party, the place has something to offer every day.
—The New York Times

Harper’s addition to the intro-to-library canon, with its anthropomorphic card cast, is a goofy winner. Raff’s mixed-media collages, digitally colored, are a bright, perfect match for Little Card’s excitement about all things library…Check it out!
—Kirkus Reviews

Raff’s minimalist illustrations, splashed in delicate pastels, and Harper’s playful text conjure up a world as buoyant as it is endearing.
—Booklist

Little Card is expressive and endearing, and in some instances, his exuberance can barely be contained…A good addition to library-themed storytimes.
—School Library Journal

Enjoyable.
—Publishers Weekly
