Waaaay back in the early days of Awful Library Books we shared some wonderful examples of old timey librarian career books. Back in 1960, this version of I Want To Be A Librarian! was published. Thankfully, we have this newer edition! I love this book for the simple text and pictures. I do think that maybe 2003 will be too old for a picture book very soon. As the technology changes, I want to see that reflected in the books. Although I would love our librarian cover girl to rock a more modern hair cut, I am at least thrilled it is not a bun and she isn’t wearing glasses!
Going over our old librarian themed posts made me chuckle.
