Lost and Found at the Library by Jeneane Kendall, e-book, 19 pages, published in 2016.
Cooper the teddy bear and Floppy the toy rabbit have been accidentally left at the library by their owners. They are placed in the “Lost and Found” box to wait. Once the library staff leave for the night, a fairy appears to help the toys. Floppy and Cooper set out to explore the library. They look at books, check out the computers and even make a sign for the library window.
With a couple of well-loved toys exploring a library when no one is around to see, and a bit of magic, this book was a pleasant and easy read. The story was straight forward, and the language simple. It is not a picture book, though there are basic coloured illustrations scattered through the book, it is more of a short story. I think it would be good for young children as a reader book when learning to read.
I liked Cooper and Floppy, they reminded me of toys I had as a child. To me, my stuffed animals were always alive, and having adventures, just like Floppy and Cooper! This is the sort of story I would have enjoyed reading as a child, and I like it now too. It was too long for my toddlers to sit through, but was perfect for my first grader.
Lost and Found at the Library is suitable for lower primary school children.
