When we go on long car trips, we would not survive without our books on CD! We go to the library, and check out a few to keep us occupied as we drive. One of our favorite books on CD is Mr. Putter and Tabby Take the Train by Cynthia Rylant, read by John McDonough.
On our last trip, we discovered a new favorite. This book has beautiful illustrations and a wonderful story, and we loved listening to the CD as our minivan cruised on the highway.
Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When Mr. McBee comes running to tell Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, that there is a lion in the library, she doesn’t blink an eye! As long as he follows the rules, why shouldn’t there be a lion in the library? Mr. McBee is not at all happy with this arrangement, but the children are delighted!
Lion becomes a regular visitor and helper at the library. But what happens when Lion breaks the rules?

Library Lion is one of our favorites. Even though it's quite long I never mind reading it!
The only book I ever 'heard' was the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy written and read by Douglas Adams. Unfortunately I've only got it on cassette. I wouldn't mind listening to other stories on cd, but doing that while driving is too dangerous!
oh, I'll have to look this one up. Thanks for popping by with your well wishes 🙂 I hope you & the family are doing well & have a wonderful weekend
The book nook is back! Yay! We love the Library Lion. If you google Library Lion Activities, you will find lots of great ideas for a themed afternoon with your wee one. And we do lots of books on cd – grown up books and kids books. I love them, but my BFF makes fun of me for it incessantly. Brat.
