Moose's Book Bus
8 Sep. 2021
Moose is the most fantastic storyteller. Every night, he sits with his family around the fire and tells an enchanting story. But, one evening, Moose can't think of a single tale he hasn't told before! What he needs is a book of stories. What he needs is a library"¦ With help from his family and friends in the woods, Moose recycles an abandoned bus from the junkyard into a book bus for his entire community to enjoy.
Beloved picture book maker Inga Moore tells a story that celebrates the joy of reading aloud and sharing stories, and the power that libraries have to bring communities together.

Every night after supper, Moose tells his family a story. When he runs out of stories, Mrs. Moose suggests that he borrow a book from someone--but none of his neighbours have any books either! Moose goes into town and visits the library, where he borrows some storybooks to take back to the woods. Moose's neighbour, Bear, brings her cubs along to hear Little Red Riding Hood, and they enjoy the story so much that they bring their friends the badgers the next night.
Soon Moose's living room is getting uncomfortably full, so he buys a bus and converts it into a mobile library full of books. The other animals can't read, but Moose teaches Bear who teaches Badger, and so on"¦ until a community has grown up around books and reading. But Moose is still the best storyteller they have!
A sweet story with delicate, traditional illustrations of woodland creatures in cosy houses and libraries. The unique power of books and reading to unite communities is its core, but it's also an ode to librarians everywhere. Some young readers may be unfamiliar with mobile libraries, so this would be a great story to start conversations about different types of libraries and the many ways books are made available to people in different places.
