ABOUT THE STORY:
“It started the summer of 2002, when the Springfield librarian, Molly McGrew, by mistake drove her bookmobile into the zoo.”
Molly introduces birds and beasts to this new something called reading, finding the perfect book for each animal—tall books for giraffes, small books for crickets, joke books for hyenas. In no time, Molly has all of the animals going “wild, simply wild, about wonderful books.”
Judy Sierra’s funny animal tale coupled with Marc Brown’s lush, fanciful artwork will have the same effect on young Homo sapiens.
The print edition of Wild About Books received the following awards:
-Mom’s Choice Platinum Award
-ALA Notable Children’s Book
-E.B. White Read Aloud Award
