From the San Diego Union-Tribune:
For a little book, “Odi’s Library Day” is a pretty big deal.
It is the first children’s book to be published by the San Diego Public Library. The eight-page bilingual board book also marks the publication debut by writer Hunter Hackett and illustrator Anisi Baigude, two longtime San Diegans who met in a UCSD Extension art class.
And while there is no definitive proof that this is the first children’s book to star a gender-neutral coyote, it is certainly the first children’s book to show a gender-neutral coyote getting their first library card from an owl librarian.
The other thing that makes “Odi’s Library Day” extra special is Odi’s adventure, which is a reminder that the small act of getting a library card can open a world of possibilities.
