This story is about an expressive girl who doesn’t like books, reading, or the library. Of all places, Beatrice has to go to the library with her older brother Henry, who struggles to keep her busy while preparing a school report. In desperation, he leaves her in a library storytime session. Although stubbornly determined not to like it, she ends up liking the story so much that she wants to look through the book again after the session. This time her response of “I don’t want to” is because she doesn’t want to leave the library! It was an okay read but i can use this book to teach my children about the concept of mind-sets, attitudes and different perceptions.
