Wild About Books

Wild About Books

by Judy Sierra, illustrated by Marc Brown


One day, Molly McGrew the librarian accidentally drove her bookmobile to the local zoo. All the animals didn't know what to make of Molly and her reading aloud. They slowly peeked out from their niches and nests to learn about this new thing called reading books. Great rhyming text makes reading aloud easy. Marc Brown's bright, cheery drawings bring a familiar feel to the book. Do you know what kind of book a hyena likes to read? Check out this book and find out!
