Synopsis:

Cooney's beloved American Book Award winner now comes to Puffin Storytime. The package comes with an audio CD with a professional reading of this beloved story. Full color.

A picture book biography about librarian Anne Carroll Moore who, as the New Yorker said, "more or less invented the children's library."

Once upon a time, American children couldnand#8217;t borrow library books. Reading wasnand#8217;t all that important for children, many thought. Luckily Miss Anne Carroll Moore thought otherwise! This is the true story of how Miss Moore created the first childrenand#8217;s room at the New York Public Library, a bright, warm room filled with artwork, window seats, and most important of all, borrowing privileges to the worldand#8217;s best childrenand#8217;s books in many different languages.
