K-Gr 3–Sam the Library Mouse is back in this gentle story about facing fears and learning new things. He meets Sarah, a library mouse from across the stacks with a taste for adventure. She introduces him to the wonder of exploration while he shows her the joys of traveling through books and research. Students will relate to Sam's reluctance to try dangerous things and delight in Sarah's winsome enthusiasm for daring escapades. The gorgeous, bright gouache illustrations are meticulously detailed and expressive. The story is an excellent way to introduce research to the youngest patrons, which, according to Sam, is “how you find out about things.” This visually appealing offering fits beautifully into the library curriculum.–Nicole Waskie-Laura, Chenango Forks Elementary, Binghamton, NY α(c) Copyright 2010.
