This book deserves 5 stars, but I m giving it 4 because I hate zoos and don t want them shown in a positive and unrealistic light But otherwise the story and definitely the illustrations deserve 5 stars.The illustrations are fabulous big, bold, colorful, appealing art style, lush and intricate, and funny too I love how the crocodiles are reading Peter Pan, the elephant is reading Dumbo, the giraffes are reading books about basketball, etc etc etc The rhyme is about a librarian with a bookmobile [...]

What fun I loved this story about a librarian who parks her bookmobile in the zoo, then proceeds to help the animals love books, find the stories they will like best, and understand how to treat books nicely It s an absolute hoot and the text and illustrations both weave in many famous books children will be familiar with some of them, and will probably giggle over the idea of otters reading Harry Potter, for example Sierra and Brown wrote this in honor of Dr Seuss, and I think he would be pleas [...]

4.5 It s hard to go wrong with a childrens book that has animals and books in it Throw in some fun rhyming sentences and you have a winner in my house I haven t read the other book some reviewers have mentioned, Born to Read, and although just about everyone says this is better I think I d like to and will, read it for myself to compare I wasn t in love with the illustrations myself but I can t say anything negative about this I just would have preferred a different way personally Julia didn t m [...]

H like this part the pandas demanded books in Chinese, Molly filled their requests, always eager to please fun book about bringing books to zoo animals who like to read.


Dolly

This is a wonderful tale in honor of Dr Seuss Filled with a fun and rhyming narrative, busy and colorful pictures, and nods to several different books, this is a great book to read aloud Our girls really enjoyed it.


Sharon

A delightful homage to Dr Seuss about a caring librarian who meets all the wishes of her Bookmobile patrons, who just happen to be zoo animals It s hard to pick a favorite verse, but since I love Rowling, it would probably be She even found waterproof books for the otter, who never went swimming without Harry Potter By the end of the book, the animals have been so spurred to creativity by all their reading, that they become authors as well, resulting in a hilarious section of bug haiku Unfortuna [...]

Today was our annual field trip day to the local zoo Although I had no time to read a story to my kiddos today, I m deciding to review this one for my daily picture book contribution This was introduced to me in college, and I thought it was wonderfully done It was written and illustrated as a tribute to the late Dr Seuss It combines animals and the love of reading sounds like a perfect combination to me Young students love spending time with this one for multiple reasons

I wish I had found this one a few months ago when tutoring my little guy We studies the animals and this would have been the perfect book It is full of witty rolling rhymes about a librarian who mistakenly takes her bookmobile to the zoo She finds the perfect book for every animal By reading aloud from the good Dr Seuss,She quickly attracted a mink and a moose,A wombat, an oryx, a lemur a lynx,Eight elephant calves, and a family of skinks.This book was illustrated by Marc Brown and is wonderful [...]

This is a rhyming picture book that starts with librarian Molly driving her bookmobile into a zoo She soon starts reading aloud and attracts all sorts of animals to this new thing called reading This book offers a great explanation to children of why they sometimes may not see all the animals when they visit the zoo, they may be hiding away reading Brown does a wonderful job filling all the pages with pictures to pull in the children and show examples of what animals they may have never seen loo [...]

One day, the library s bookmobile makes an unplanned stop at the local zoo Molly the librarian finds that the animals love reading They devour books sometimes literally Their love of reading encourages a love of writing Soon every animal at the zoo is an author The animals voracious love of books necessitates the building of a zoobrary.What I thought What a delightful book The language is pleasing and the pictures are colorful This is an imaginative way to introduce children to the delights of r [...]

Although Wild About Books came out before Born to Read I read them in reverse order lucky me Now I see why people who had read this first were disappointed with Judy Sierra s second book I agree This is better than Born to Read Really, really cute The animals in the zoo create their own library by writing their own books The story is told all in rhyme and I don t know which is cuter the delightful pictures or the sweet, clever play on words An all around treat to read, for young and old Highly r [...]

This is so much fun even after a year s time The rhyming and alliteration keep it fresh, as do the imitated antics of the various characters.To read our full review, go to The Reading Tub.

How could I not love this book The librarian Molly McGrew mistakenly drives her bookmobile into the zoo, but still finds the perfect book for everyone She even has waterproof books for the otter, who never went swimming without Harry Potter.

I usually give kids books two stars, which means It was okay Three stars is a rare rating, but this one was fun.

I was fortunate to have Marc Brown sign this book for my 18 month old son It is one of my son s favorite books It was dedicated to Dr Seuss and is very fun to read out loud.

I loved that this was not only a tribute to Dr Seuss but my kids just really enjoyed all the pop culture references OF COURSE THE OTTERS ARE OBSESSED WITH HARRY POTTER.

This book, written in the style of Dr Seuss, is clever enough to appeal to adults as well as children.

So much fun The rhymes and poetry are fabulous Some parts of the story are a bit advanced for K and 1, but over all, it s such a fun story that I don t mind at all

As Molly McGrew began her journey into literature she was accompanied by various friendly faces This engaging book mesmerizes the audience in an exotic adventure The rhyme scheme that Judy Sierra utilizes allows children to relate in a way that they find comedic and amusing for their adolescence Also, the personification throughout the book enables the children to explore their developing imaginations Overall, the message of Sierra s book inspires children to read because of animals irresistible [...]

Wild About Books demonstrates the power of stories and the vast momentum they utilize to intensify and develop relationships no matter the circumstances Via the characters animals, in this case positive experiences with reading, I got the clear impression that the moral of the story was that books bring people together The plot was very easy to follow, and the numerous puns amongst the countless other plays on words really draw the reader in I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it was fun to read d [...]

On a summer afternoon Molly McGrew drives her bookmobile into a zoo then starts to read aloud and she gets the attention of an unexpected audience what happens next you d have to read to find out This humorous tale tells the reader about books and all things about books through the fun use of zoo animals The book is covered in colorful interesting pictures from top to bottom The story rolls of the tongue with ease because of the rhyming qualities it has The story uses imaginary words to help fur [...]

Clever lines and amusing, well draw illustrations Boys ages 3 and 6 laughed at the rhymes and enjoyed finding all the zoo animals doing funny things with their books Then the animals became authors The librarian was a fun and happy character Boys learned about book mobiles We are lucky enough to have our library very close so they d never seen one Very good celebration of books and libraries We love our local library the Dove branch of the Carlsbad library and our local zoo San Diego zoo so this [...]

In the summer of 2002 Molly the librarian takes books to a place they have never been before, the zoo The animals held on to every last word Molly read aloud to them Instead of having the animals eating out of her hands, she had them reading out of her hands With all the different animals and colors painted in this book it really brings it to life I used to read to my animals when I was little and this story had me wanting to do that again It s a fu light hearted book that will make you wild abo [...]


Molly Daybert

I ll admit that I was initially drawn to this book because the main character shares my name However, I ended up finishing this cute children s book because of the story Sierra s book is filled with rollicking rhymes, and amazing illustrations I loved how each animal in the zoo had a different taste in books just like humans do and how the animals even began writing their own novels This fun story is a great way to introduce young readers to the joys of reading, while incorporating many literary [...]
