HUFF BARBARA A. Once Inside the Library. (Illus. by Iris Van Rynback.) Boston: Little, Brown, 1990. 30pp. $14.95. 89-12131. ISBN 0-316-37967-0. C.I.P.K, EP

This book is the kind of celebration of libraries and their resources that warms librarians' hearts. The illustrations are attractive, and the subjects and activities featured are broad enough to suit a great variety of tastes and interests. A similar title published recently is A Visit to the Sesame Street Library, by Deborah Hautzig ( Random, 1986), in which Big Bird goes to his local library on the advice of a bookstore owner when he cannot pay for a book he wants. Another such title is Dinosaurs Are 568, by Jean Rogers ( Greenwillow, 1988), in which a boy's knowledge of dinosaurs and books about them in the school library make him feel confident about going to school and participating in classroom activities.-- Sarah Berman, Tempe Elementary School District No. 3, Tempe, AZ

Beginning with one of the earliest attempts at communication in France some 30,000 years ago, the author describes the development of writing, printing, and the collecting of books and information into libraries. Charmingly illustrated with brightly colored drawings, Knowlton's book has a very satisfactory chronological arrangement that links the development of writing, papermaking, printing, and bookmaking to the development of libraries. There is no index or table of contents, but the two-page sections on each topic are well marked and logically arranged. The end-papers, which graphically explain the Dewey decimal system, would make a great poster for any children's department. This is a useful and appealing book for young readers to learn about books and the library.-- Frances E. Millhouser, Fairfax County Public Library, Fairfax City, VA

MCINERNEY CLAIRE. Tracking the Facts: How to Develop Research Skills. (Illus. by Harry Pulver; from the Study Skills Series.) Minneapolis: Lerner, 1990. 64pp. $10.95. 90-5454. ISBN 0-8225-2426-0. Index; C.I.P.EA
