270. “Beatrice Doesn’t Want To” by Laura Numeroff

We all know Laura Numeroff’s successful “If you give…” series, created in collaboration with Ms. Bond. Today’s book, which is not the part of the series and was illustrated by Lynn Munsinger, is different, yet equally delightful treat for  young readers. Especially for those who don’t care about books. Yet.

Beatrice  was anti-reading and the library was surely not her favorite place to be. But, she had to go there with Henry, her brother slash sitter who needed to work on a report. For the first two times, Beatrice just kept disturbing Henry, but on the third time, the clever boy found a solution. A story time. Of course, Beatrice didn’t want to go, but… as we all know, books can be captivating. So, wouldn’t you know it… When Henry came to pick his sister up, she didn’t want to go home.

A cute and humorous story,  familiar and inviting library setting, warm and bright pictures… at least three reasons for your child to like this book.
