Review by Booklist Review

With a brightly engaging layout that boasts not a square inch of wasted space, the You Wouldn't Want to Live Without . . . series (6 new titles) continues to explore the ways in which a variety of things have shaped human life and development. From major technological developments to seemingly innocuous objects, the items profiled here all have ties to human history and still play important roles in life today. While libraries have always been a place where books are preserved and read, Libraries! discusses how they've also become spaces for communities to gather and share other things. Cartoon graphics, bursting with cheeky attitude, will keep kids interested and prevent the fact-packed pages from getting too crowded. Plentiful back matter, eye-catching design, and a friendly tone make this series a consistent winner.--Maggie Reagan Copyright 2010 Booklist
