Dead-on humor in sly, mischievious wording by Barbara Bottner. Joyous illustrations by Michael Emberley -- that I predict will soon adorn every children's library in the country. (How could they not?!) Trust me, you're gonna LOVE Miss Brooks (and kids will be more than entertained. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!)
Miss Brooks, Missy and their hilarious antics will have you reading and re-reading this delightfully funny book. And it wouldn't be at all surprising if this is the book that inspires a love of reading and literature in your child.
I loved this book and used it to start a conversation with some of my students about the importance of finding books that speak to you, even if they are not the ones that everyone else is reading.
This declaration is often a plea as they really DO want to find the right book to read but they are afraid it will never happen. The young girl in this story is one of those kids. Reading does not interest her. The librarian, Miss Brooks, never gives up though. She is relentless in her efforts to make the match between book and reader. When it does not happen she is non-judgmental and just keeps trying.
The crisis arises during Book Week as each student must share a book they love. What happens if you do not love a book?
Emberley's Miss Brooks is a zany, costumed, book loving, cheerleader who is not offended at the child's lack of interest. Her demented "Hungry Caterpillar" costume is worth the price of the book. The child's slouchy, short stature and pulled down hat/hands in her pockets demeanor, tell us a great deal about her expectations for reading success. Later, her jubilant face tells the rest of the story when she does find the right book at the right time that is worthy of her attention. The book she loves is a perfect match, full of warts and snorts.
I wish every child had a patient "Miss Brooks" in their life to help them all find the "right" book to love.
