It's not heartwarming or anything, but the illustrations are adorable and it's a good one to read to preschool groups who come in for library tours - Read It, Don't Eat It by Ian Schoenherr.

Contains a page about libraries and is about reading - Reading Makes You Feel Good by the wonderful Todd Parr.

My favorite - Miss Dorothy and her bookmobile by Gloria Houston.

As a bookmobile librarian I love it but the story is very heartwarming and many feelings are the same I have about dealing with the public.

Here's a list from Amazon:

I couldn't find the one on there that my son used to like to read ... I have a great pic of him sitting on our couch with this big book all about Libraries on his lap and one of my old (non working) cell phones in his hand. Chip off the old block, ha ha.

I'm starting my graduate program for my MLIS in the fall, in a library teacher program, and I'd really like to collect children's books about libraries.

I absolutely love "Goin' Someplace Special" by Pat McKissack, this book won a Coretta Scott King Award, it's beautiful and I highly recommend it. I'm also a fan of "Biblioburro" by Jeanette Winter.

I'd love to hear of other people's favorite library books!
