5/9: Children’s Book of The Week; Miss Brooks Loves Books (and I don’t)

Miss Brooks Loves Books (and I don’t)
By Barbara Bottner
Illustrated by Michael Emberly
Miss Brooks is the ecstatic librarian of the elementary school…and our first-grader is not a fan. For all Miss Brooks’ extraordinary costumes of leprechauns, pilgrims, pumpkins, and groundhogs, she can’t win the resistant heart of our book-wary heroine. Our protagonist’s book-week is going to be a real chore—that is, until she finds a book about warts. A whole world is opened; one with monsters and warts and slime and all sorts of fun!

A quirky love of reading story that doesn’t have even a hint of preachiness. A charmer of a book from the producer/writer/designer of Sesame Street.
