Elizabeth Brown doesn't like to play with dolls, and she doesn't like to skate.

Review by

This Stewart book is a story about Elizabeth Brown, a girl who falls from the sky and enjoys book. This is based on the true life of a friend of Stewart's, Mary Elizabeth Brown. The story has a small rhyme scheme making it an easy book to real aloud. It tells about a girl who loves reading and can never set a book down. I would recommend this book for an author study as well as to get children excited about reading.

Review by

This is a cute story about Elizabeth Brown who loves books and to read so much that her house is overflowing with books and she cannot even fit one more. She decides to open a public library. This would be a good book to introduce children to the classroom library and how to use it. How to file books and how to find certain books.
