Madeline Finn and the Library Dog
- Madeline Finn DOES NOT like to read.
- Not books.
- Not magazines.
- Not even the menu on the ice cream truck.
- But Madeline Finn DOES want a gold star from her teacher.
- Stars are for good readers.
- Stars are for understanding words.
- And saying them out loud.
- Fortunately, Madeline Finn meets Bonnie, a library dog. Reading out loud to Bonnie isn’t so bad. When Madeline Finn gets stuck, Bonnie doesn’t mind. Madeline Finn can pet her until she figures the word out.
- As it turns out, it’s fun to read when you’re not afraid of making mistakes. Bonnie teaches Madeline Finn that it’s okay to go slow. And to keep trying. Just like the sticker says.
- With endearing illustrations, Lisa Papp brings an inspiring and comforting book to all new readers who just need a little confidence to overcome their fears.
