Beatrice Doesn't Want to Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Beatrices expressions are priceless. . . . This charming tale emphasizes the importance of finding the right book for the right reader." —- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Beatrice doesnt like books, and she doesnt like tagging along with her brother to the library. She doesnt want to get books from the shelf. She doesnt want to let Henry work. And she certainly doesnt want to sit in a room full of kids during story hour. Is there anything that could possibly change her mind?

Beatrice doesn't like books, and she doesn't like tagging along with her brother to the library. She certainly doesn't want to sit in a room full of kids during story hour. Is there anything that could possibly change her mind? Full color.

About the Author

Laura Numeroff is the author of many best-selling books for children, including IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE and IF YOU TAKE A MOUSE TO THE MOVIES, illustrated by Felicia Bond, as well as WHAT MOMMIES DO BEST, WHAT DADDIES DO BEST, WHAT GRANDMAS DO BEST, and WHAT GRANDPAS DO BEST, illustrated by Lynn Munsinger. Of BEATRICE DOESN'T WANT TO, she says, "This story is definitely NOT autobiographical, as my favorite place to go as a kid was the library!"

Lynn Munsinger has illustrated more than ninety books for children,

including SCORE ONE FOR THE SLOTHS, SOMETHING MIGHT HAPPEN, TACKY THE PENGUIN, and HOORAY FOR WODNEY WAT, all by Helen Lester, as well as THE TALE OF CUSTARD THE DRAGON by Ogden Nash. She says, "I've always been a big fan of Laura Numeroff's writing, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this story to life. I particularly enjoyed creating Beatrice's character — she gave me the opportunity to create so many great facial expressions!"
