Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don’t)

Illustrated by Michael Emberley

Ages: 5+, 32 pages 

Miss Brooks is the librarian and she really loves books. She even dresses up for story hour and celebrates books all year. However, there’s a stubborn first grader who doesn’t think she will ever love a book the same way as the librarian. In May, Miss Brooks announces that it’s Book Week and each student needs to pick a favorite story to share with the class. They need to wear a costume and tell why you love the story. Miss Brooks fills her bag with books to read at home, but the child dislikes all the books because they’re too silly or have kisses. Finally, the mother calls the child a wart. Suddenly, it clicks and the stubborn child now wants to read a story about warts. So, the mother finds a book called Shrek! and they make an ogre costume. There’s even stick-on warts for the whole class!

I thought Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don’t) was a cute book for hesitant readers. The correct book may be difficult to locate, but it’s out there somewhere. There’s a book for everyone! Today is the start of National Library Week. Plan to visit your local library soon!

Celebrate National Library Week!
