Description


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

Beatrice doesn’t like books, and she doesn’t like tagging along with her brother to the library. She doesn’t want to get books from the shelf. She doesn’t want to let Henry work. And 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?
