Lenny and Nina are Buried in Books
Author: Linda Cooper

For children 5-7 years old.
Lenny and Nina have so many books that they cannot find what they are looking for and Grandma almost can't find them! Beginning with this somewhat silly, exaggerated situation, this book proceeds to introduce concepts of library organization to young children in an engaging and humorous story using vocabulary they can understand and a situation to which they can relate. The children's solution to their problem both empowers them in organizing their own environment and introduces them to how the larger culture organizes information for the community.
