A great review of Miss Brooks Loves Books, (and I don’t) appears here in the May 6th entry of the excellent children’s books blog/site – Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. Here’s an excerpt: (by “Jules”)
Seven Cheers (Make That Fist Pumps) for Miss Brooks. “Since I both speak and write in hyperbole sometimes, you may not believe me when I say the book featured in this morning’s post is one of my favorite picture books from 2010. But have mercy, dear readers, and believe me, because here’s the thing: I can’t cover every picture book released in this world, now can I? So, I cover my very favorites from the year (hence, the rampant approbation and high regard for titles here at the ‘ol blawg, all hyperbole aside), and this is one. This right here is such a winning picture book on every level that I’ll be flat-out impressed with myself, something I rarely am, if my words can do it justice this morning.”…..
“A real charmer. Not to be missed. Kirkus wrote, “In a word: lovable.” That pretty much covers it. Love. Love. Love. I adore this book.“
