Miss Brooks Loves Books (and I don't)
by Barbara Bottner
Kids Wings Award Book

Miss Brooks will do anything to get us read books. She has dressed as a long-eared bunny when she read a book about a rabbit, a grey elephant when she read Babar, and a big green caterpillar when she read The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I just never know what kind of strange creature Miss Brooks will become to encourage me to read a book.

But it's not going to work! I won't fall for it.

You see Miss Brooks loves books, but I don't.

During Book Week, Miss Brooks told to pick our favorite story and dress like someone or something in the story. She wanted us to show everyone why they loved the book. How could I pick my favorite? I didn't like any of them!

What do you think happens? Do you think Miss Brooks will win? Do you think I can hold out against all those books in the library?

Miss Brooks Loves Books (and I don't) by Barbara Bottner will inspire kids to find that favorite book and librarians to become the real-life literary characters to do the inspiring! The great illustrations on stark, uncluttered white background help readers focus on the emotions and humor of the story. It's a story that SHOULD look familiar to students who have a firecracker librarian-cheerleader and a love of books, as well to those reluctant readers among us!
