We also read Book! Book! Book! by Deborah Bruss, a funny story about how the animals got bored after the kids went to school and the chicken leads the way to library to read a book and end their days of boredom.
Another favorite is I Took my Frog to the Library by Eric A. Kimmel. I especially love how the elephant is reading at storytime, at the end.

I am a librarian,
I check out all the books.
Come and visit me real soon,
And give my books a look!
All the boys and girls can come
And check out books for free.
I help them find the books they want
At the library!
Big books, little books,
(hands wide, then bring together)
Short books, tall,
(hands one above the other, spread apart)
Thin books, fat books,
(hold thumb and pointer close together, then spread apart)
I love them all.
(place hand over heart)
Read, Read, Read a Book
(tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)
Read, read, read a book,
Read one everyday.
Reading books is tons of fun
That’s what the smart kids say!
This Is The Way
