Here’s another great read for the 3-5ish age group.


It’s a great story about a little boy who’s not excited about the new school year starting…until he meets Miss Smith and her storybook.  It’s a magical storybook that brings the characters to life, but becomes trouble when Miss Smith isn’t there to finish the stories.

It’s a very cute read with vivid illustrations.  It can be found at the Olathe Library…but you’ll have to wait until Reece is ready to give it back : )
