    Highly Recommended

    Miss Dorothy is a beautifully illustrated, beautifully written picture book for book lovers of any age. I am a school librarian and bought this book to do as a 'read-aloud' to my third graders. I wasn't sure how it would go over. Obviously, I loved this book about a librarian who made house calls in rural America, but to my surprise, my third graders enjoyed it as much as I did. This is the kind of book that changes the bad reputation nonfiction has with school children. Makes a good pairing with Biblioburro, another true story about a book mobile- really a book mule- from Columbia.

    Inspirational book about dedicated Dorothy the librarian

    I read Gloria Houston's new book 'Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile'. I liked it. Very well written. It's inspiring. Heartwarming book and touches the heart of its readers. Dorothy opened and brought the world to the doors of book loving people of beautiful little town at the foot of Mount Mitchell, NC. Every time Dorothy took her 'library' at the doors of the readers she brought joy, happiness and engendered love of books in the lives of her patrons. Miss Dorothy did great work which can not be measured and expressed adequately in words. Gloria Houston's book is a glowing tribute to Miss Dorothy and Bookmobile. Illustrations by Susan Condie Lamb has greatly added beauty and warmth to the book. Her illustrations makes you feel that you are there in that beautiful small town. I read this book to my six year old grand daughter. She liked it much and she took the book to her mother asking her to read it again! I highly recommend this book to book loving readers of all ages.
