Young girl Lydia was five years old when her family left Colorado for her grandmama’s place in Iowa. Her father lost his job, and they needed a place to live. Lydia’s family comprised her mom, dad, five big sisters, and one baby brother. Little missed her Colorado home every single day. Because in Iowa, they lived in various people’s houses on different days. She desperately wanted a place to call home. Then, one day, her mom took her and her siblings to a prominent, beautiful building loaded with books - The Library. This place changed everything for Lydia.
We picked this book for its cover and title. This book is a hearty and delightful tribute to the author’s childhood influencer. Positive inspirations are what you need during bad times, and that’s what the librarian was to Lydia. Her kindness brought much-needed happiness into young Lydia’s life. The illustrator has done a marvelous job of bringing to life the author’s life-changing moments.
Dear Librarian by Lydia M. Sigwarth is a well-deserved tribute to the beautiful souls who lift our spirits. The illustrations walk one through the story in a perfect symphony.
