    A librarian mistakenly drives her bookmobile into a zoo causing

    A librarian mistakenly drives her bookmobile into a zoo causing a stampede amongst the animals to get to the visiting library and find out what reading is all about.  Like a true dedicated bookworm, Molly McGrew, with  steadfast confidence and on a mission to satisfy the animal's curiosity, succeeds in turning them into avid readers and even writers. 




    This fantastic rhyming book takes the reader on a jolly romp with the animals and just might be an inspiration for your child's reading skills to escalate.  Cleverly the author uses playful language: "llamas read while eating their lunches", and "a hippo wins the 'Zoolitzer Prize', just to focus on a few.  She hands out tall books, small books, fat books and thin books and even waterproof books to the otters. You discover the crocodiles reading about Peter Pan, the elephants reading Dumbo and the giraffes reading about basketball.  Everyone has a book that interests him and the librarian even goes so far as to teach the animals proper respect and book etiquette towards their valued books.




    The illustrations are  charming and the animals (even the more ferocious ones) are adorable.  Marc Brown has done a fantastic job in capturing just the right colour pallet and energy to move the text to the next level.  The book is a fun, fun read and I highly recommend it.  Kids, parents and especially librarians will be thrilled with this book and the positive message it brings about the joy of reading and writing.

    A Hook For Reading!

    A motivating book for encouraging children to get into books and read. Plenty of adult humor and play on words to keep all ages interested at multiple levels of enjoyment. Be sure to have plenty of great books on hand for kids to go wild over after reading this one aloud.
