Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375846824, Hardcover)Amazon Best Books of the Month, March 2010: If ever there were a perfect picture book for those so-called "reluctant readers" this is it. Miss Brooks Loves Books (And I Don't) tells the story of Missy, a little girl who rejects just about every story that comes her way. She complains that "They're too kissy. Too pink. And too silly." The tireless librarian Miss Brooks is not about to give up, nor is Missy's mom. When Missy realizes she'd like to read about warts, Mom comes through with an inspired choice that sets this picky reader on the path to book bliss. Leave it to the pros--author Barbara Bottner and illustrator Michael Emberley to hit the funny bone with this clever and quirky new read. --Lauren Nemroff See Inside Miss Brooks Loves Books (And I Don't)(Click on Thumbnails to Enlarge) Too Kissy, Too Pink, Too Silly Stubborn, Smelly, Snorty Ogre
