Meet Bibli, a brave little library bookshelf in search of a story about someone like him . . . Once upon a time, in a library like any other, there lived a little bookshelf named Bibli who carried a BIG question on his shelves: "Could there be a story somewhere about a bookshelf like me?" Bibli is told that bookshelves are supposed to hold stories, not have ones of their own. But everything changes when he meets Cassie, a girl longing for a friend just as much as Bibli longs for a story to relate to. Bibli learns that with kindness, confidence, empathy, and friendship, even your biggest dreams can come true--and that everyone has an important story worth sharing. The Friendly Bookshelf is a social-emotional learning (SEL) research-based book and the first-ever picture book about a bookshelf. Written to build self-confidence and self-esteem as well as encourage inclusivity, Bibli's story empowers children to be brave, be a friend, and always be your-shelf! Readers will be inspired to go beyond the final page of the book and share their own stories, as well as be the pioneers of a kinder, more inclusive world where everybody (and every bookshelf!) belongs.


The Friendly Bookshelf is the perfect story for book lovers raising book lovers. Bibli is a bookshelf that wants to read a book with a story about him. Identity and finding it in things we read is at the front of book sales lately everyone wants to see themselves in the characters they read about in the books they read. They are filled with themes that open discussion among children, such as self-confidence, social-emotional learning, and literacy and literature. The illustrations are stunning, the story fun to read, and the characters easy to like. Bibli learns how to step out of his comfort zone and encourage those shy readers in your life. A perfect addition to any library.

Friendly Bookshelf.
