9780375825385: Wild About Books

It started the summer of 2002, when the Springfield librarian, Molly McGrew, by mistake drove her bookmobile into the zoo.

In this rollicking rhymed story, Molly introduces birds and beasts to this new something called reading. She finds the perfect book for every animal—tall books for giraffes, tiny ones for crickets. “She even found waterproof books for the otter, who never went swimming without Harry Potter.” In no time at all, Molly has them “forsaking their niches, their nests, and their nooks,” going “wild, simply wild, about wonderful books.” Judy Sierra’s funny animal tale coupled with Marc Brown’s lush, fanciful paintings will have the same effect on young Homo sapiens. Altogether, it’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys!

About the Author:

Judy Sierra is the author of many critically acclaimed children’s books, including the bestselling collection of funny poems, Antarctic Antics; Silly & Sillier; and Tasty Baby Belly Buttons. She lives in Castro Valley, CA.

Marc Brown is best known as the creator of Arthur the aardvark, but you will find no aardvarks or animals wearing glasses in this book. Drawing upon his classical training at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Marc Brown’s colorful paintings for Wild About Books reflect the naïve spirit of folk art at its best. “Judy Sierra’s story gave me the opportunity to indulge myself in painting,” said Mr. Brown, adding that this is the book of which he is most proud. He lives in Hingham and Martha’s Vineyard, MA.

Review:

This book is perfect for primary school libraries and all librarians, whether in school or not... A joy of a book and a worthy addition to any primary school library. School Librarian A compelling volume for encouraging both literacy in its widest sense, and books and libraries in particular. Ibby Link This ingenious book, with Judy Sierra's lively rhyming text, makes reading look fun - always a good thing. Marc Brown's bright cheerful pictures are full of little gems. Carousel A clever librarian quickly attracts a crowd when she launches the mobile library by reading aloud from Dr Seuss. 'In a flash, every beast in the zoo was stampeding / To learn all about this new something called reading.' There are fat books and thin books, funny books and sad books - something for everyone. Soon, all the animals are not only reading but writing too. An entertaining and inspiring introduction to books. Book Ahead 0-7 This beautifully illustrated paperback uses some highly imaginative and amusing rhyming text to tell the story of a mobile library which visits the zoo by mistake and soon instills the reading (and writing) bug in all the animals... This story certainly reinforces the message that there are books to suit all tastes and that everyone will find something they love when they step into a library. Child Care
