Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile
TITLE: Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile
AUTHOR: Gloria Houston
ILLUSTRATOR: Susan Condie Lamb
As a child Dorothy knows she wants to be a librarian "in charge of a fine brick library just like the one where she checked out books." When she grows up though she lives out in the country and ends up with a bookmobile. Miss Dorothy brings the books to the people.
I enjoyed reading this story and seeing this woman's love of books and sharing that love with the people in her life. The author wrote this book because of the role Dorothy Thomas played in her life. This is a wonderful book with beautiful illustrations to share with children and pass on the love of books to them.
