What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Madeline Finn does NOT like to read. But she DOES want a gold star from her teacher. But, stars are for good readers. Stars are for understanding words, and for 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. 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. 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.

Gorgeous illustrations to accompany this story of a little girl who struggles with reading despite her persistence. Encouraged by her teacher, mother and the librarian, she finally finds the perfect listener to practice on and gains the self-confidence she needs to get a coveted reading star. The story is sweet and beautiful and I love that Madeline discovers she loves to read in a very out of the box way!
