I'm a sucker for colorful illustrations and even more colorful characters in a book! Miss Smith's Incredible Storybook most certainly fits the bill.
When Zach meets his new teacher, Miss Smith, he expects her to be boring. But, boy, is he wrong! When Miss Smith reads stories the characters COME TO LIFE! One day Miss Smith is out of the room and so many characters out of the books that things get a little crazy. Miss Smith takes care of everything when she returns to the classroom.
I love this book for so many reasons! Gilmore has created a fantasy world where a small girl is a doctor among the crocodiles. Her kindness and bravery are admirable. In the end, her patience and compassion win the day!

I love books so much! My particular loves are children's books and professional books that catch my fancy. One thing that keeps me happy and sane as a teacher is being able to get tons of books from the library and share them with my students. I have tried different ways to keep track of my books, but here's another attempt. We'll se if I can make this one fly!
