About the Author

Carrie Finn never thought that she would write books, much less books for children. However, after spending so much time with her 13 nieces and nephews, something must have rubbed off on her. She’s now the author of 10 titles for Picture Window Books. Carrie has been teaching college writing since 1999 and continues to enjoy helping others with their writing. She stays busy by throwing pottery on the wheel, playing the piano, baking bread from scratch, and talking to the miniature donkeys on the farm near her house. Carrie currently lives in Waterloo, Iowa, with her husband and trusty sidekick, Dan.

Lots of kids use the library, and show us what good manners look likeOkay, now this is a preachy book. It's little more than an illustrated list of rules, and the illustrations, while 'modern' and energetic, do little to enhance the text. If kids learn what the book would have them do, it is only for the satisfaction of library staff, and not the kids. The premise is not the problem, but rather the execution: it's entirely devoid of humor, story, or characters kids can identify with. I cannot imagine a kid enjoying reading it to her- or himself, or any but the stuffiest librarians, teachers, or parents choosing it for a storytime.
