Miss Brooks Loves Books

13 May

Yesterday, the fabulous staff and administration of my school threw a retirement party for the five of us retiring.  Each of us received a basket of goodies selected especially for us.  The goodie in my basket that touched my heart was this book.  Miss Brooks really loves books and makes it her mission to help kids love books as much a she does.  She dresses up in costumes and reads to her kids.  A lot.  A situation particularly “vexing” to reluctant reader Missy.  When Miss Brooks assigns each kid to dress in a costume and share a book they love, Missy still can’t find a book to love; dismissing her classmates’ books as “Too flowery, too furry, too clickety, too yippity.”  Of course, Miss Brooks doesn’t give up, and neither does Missy’s mom.  Will Missy find a book to love?  I’ll bet you know the answer to that, but you’ll need to read this book to find out the connection that turns Missy into a reader.  I LOVED this book.  It brought a tear to my eye.  Thanks, Terrie!  You found the perfect book for me!  Read more and have a look inside this book at Amazon.  (Image above from the Amazon site)
