Madeline Finn does not like to read. The truth is she struggles a little, especially when she has to read out loud. When her mother takes her to the library, the librarian asks Madeline Finn if she would like to read to a dog! Bonnie looks like a big, snowy polar bear; she is patient, does not interrupt, and never giggles. Over time, Madeline Finn gains confidence in her reading and surprise! earns a star for reading at school. One day Bonnie isn't at the library. Turns out she has a surprise of her own. A gentle story with lovely illustrations that is perfect for any child who struggles a little (with reading or any new skill), but perseveres anyway. Inspiring!
