Melvil scratched his head as he stood on a stool and looked at the piles and piles of books on the shelves. It was just a big mess and there wasn't any way he could find what he was looking for. When he grew up he was able to "make a system to organize those stack of books and classify and list `em." What Melvil did was make it easy for us to find where nonfiction books are in a library. "The Dewey decimal sytem keep nonfiction in its place. / Books are grouped by subject, such as art or outer space. / This system mainly covers books on topics that are real: / people, things, and places jammed with factual appeal!" In other words, when you go into a library you'll be able to find what you are looking for instead of looking at a jumble of books.

If you think you want to learn more about the Internet you'd simply head to the shelves that are "labeled with the zeroes, or the Os." You can see the labels on the ends of the shelves and on the spines of the books. Easy peasy! If you head to the 100s you can find out all about us, even those unusual things like ghosts and people like Harry Houdini. When you want to learn about the religions of the world "and probe beliefs and faiths of people living around the globe," it's off to the 200s. Anything you need to know about can easily be found if you know how the Dewey decimal system works. What section do you think this book would be in?

This is a fun, informative book about the Dewey decimal system the young reader will enjoy. This vibrant book makes the system come alive as Cleary's inimitable rhyming scheme helps children learn where to find nonfiction books in a library. This is not an in-depth look at the system, but rather an introductory one for the younger student.

Most children probably think the Dewey decimal system is boring. This book takes children through their library and explains everything in colorful detail. It talks about how the system got started and then goes through each set of numbers and explains, in easy to understand language, what types of books you can find. The illustrations are fun and add well to each explanation. As each section is talked about the illustrations fill the page with visuals. The rhyming verses help commit the topics to memory and make the book more entertaining to read. At the end of the book is a page that describes the system in more detail and gives instructions on how to find a particular book at the library. The author took something that could potentially be very boring to children and made it fun while still being educational. This is a must have for any school library and would be a good addition to any home with book lovers as well.
This book is for ages 7 to 10.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Literature in exchange for my honest review.

I'm as surprised as anyone that there can be a book about the Dewey Decimal System that is light and funny, but this book does the trick. It is informative. It doesn't default to the simple rhymes of a young child's book, but winds up with a great array of interesting word choices. I've enjoyed and reviewed many of Cleary's books in the past, and have enjoyed all, but this is from a different series than the ones that explain parts of speech and math.

I wish it had a little more explanation per page. Still a litlle vague in my opinion, but again, appropriate for the target audience.
