Great story about STORIES ( )
  melodyreads | Feb 25, 2015 |
A fun story full of imagination, for any age but especially for the older kids. Could be a great starter to helping children learn to write their own story, even when they dont believe that they have one. ( )

Imagination, snakes, defeating a bully, storytelling, a librarian, ogres, OH MY! I think the Miss Brooks books win the night! Great reads for slightly older kiddos. ( )

Anyone who loved Mrs. Brooks loves Books (and I don't) will love this one just as much. Missy doesn't want to miss Story Nook, but taking the shortcut to school past Billy Toomey's house is "vexing" when he never fails to annoy her. Today's story nook is different; they're not reading stories; they're telling stories. Despite Mrs. Brooks' reassurance that everyone has a story to tell, Missy dramatically proclaims, I've got nothing." Gradually, with Miss Brooks' teaching her young charges about plot and characters and satisfying endings, Missy sees just how to translate the miserable shortcut past Billy Toomey's house into a story. A great pairing with the prequel for story time. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449813282, Hardcover)

A hilarious companion to the New York Times bestselling Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don’t) about the power of stories and storytelling.
Missy loves her librarian, Miss Brooks. And she loves to go to Miss Brooks’ before-school story time. But to get to Story Nook, she has to pass Billy Toomey’s house—and she does not love Billy Toomey.
Billy always tries to steal her hat and jeers, “I’m going to get you!” It’s vexing. Then one rainy (and hatless) day, Miss Brooks changes story hour to storytelling hour. She teaches the kids about characters and plot and action and satisfying conclusions and encourages them to make up their own tales.
And that’s when Missy has a brainstorm. She sees a way to use her made-up story to deal with her real-life bully.
In this terrifically funny ode to inventiveness and ingenuity, Barbara Bottner and Michael Emberley celebrate the power of stories and how they can help us to rewrite our own lives.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:01:03 -0400)

A school librarian encourages her students to make up stories, and teaches a lesson about bullying in the process.
