Finally, Benjamin shared his opinion of “Library Mouse” by Daniel Kirk. You can find the book Library Mouse (not a real mouse!) in the library in Cafe Oscar. Here’s what Benjamin said about the book:
This book is all about a library mouse. Sam the mouse started to write a book about a mouse’s life. And then the next day the kids come to the library and they find the book interesting.
So Sam wrote another book about the lonely cheese. The next day the kids come back they find it interesting, too. So Sam wrote a book about a mouse mansion. And the kids come back the next day. And the kids think it’s very very interesting.
And then he gets a letter at night and it says: The kids really like your books and they want to meet you. So he thought that everybody would think that the mouse didn’t write the books. So Sam made a box that said meet the author but then everybody thought the author was them because there was a mirror in the box! This book was very interesting.
These are just three of the books located in our exhibits at the Children’s Museum of South Dakota, but there are more than 500 more where that came from. We invite you to #PlayAlongSD with us: Do you have a child who would be willing to volunteer to share their opinion about books on our museum floor? Or perhaps they have a favorite book that we should consider adding to our collection? We’d love to hear about it.
