the best book you'll ever read aloud to your kids
Laurie Knowlton has the childlike spirit of a 7 year old .... she remembers the excitement, wonder and chaos of being a kid caught up in their make believe world. I KNOW A LIBRARIAN WHO CHEWED ON A WORD is a raucous circus of read aloud fun as the kids follow their librarian, Miss Devine, on her chomping spree. This escapade begins with the fine Miss Devine tearing a WORD from a library book and savoring its tastiness as she chews and chews and chews.Was this review helpful?

The kids shadow their Librarian as she consumes one item after another, "a book, a book-cart, a shelf, a table", the whole while wondering what was that one word, that divine, tasty word, that started the eating frenzy?
I love reading this book with different voices for each character and seeing the joy and delight with which my young listeners respond. Some books are meant to be read aloud with unabashed enthusiasm and abandonment of the "shhhhh, quiet" rule in the library.
