Beatrice Doesn't Want To...
Numeroff, Laura. 2004. 2008. Beatrice Doesn't Want To.
Beatrice Doesn't Want To (2004) is now available in paperback! This is exciting news for me because I love this lovable brother-sister dog duo. Henry has a little sister named Beatrice. As you can guess from the title, Beatrice doesn't want to do something she has to do. In this case, Henry needs her to go with him to the library so he can work on a project for school. She's stubborn; she's insistent. She doesn't want to go to the library. She doesn't like books. She doesn't like reading. The library is B-O-R-I-N-G. Which means that Henry at the beginning is in for some trouble--whining, pesky little sister! But on the third day, the final day, Beatrice changes her tune! It's story time at the library...and you're invited!
