Overdue is a book about the most popular book in the school library. When someone takes him home and he gets lost, Bob is so sad. No one is looking through his pages. When he is finally found, he creates a new connection with a kid.

This book was really cute! It teaches kids how to care for library books and books in general. It shows kids the importance of reading and taking care of books. The illustrations were cute and eye catching. I think a lot of kids will enjoy this book.

Thanks so much to netgalley and Capstone for the arc of this book in exchange for an honest review!
