" I love this book! Miss Brooks' story nook comes to life when the lights go out at school and she challenges her students to make up their own stories. Missy is relunctant at first, but soon has the entire class involved in her tale that ends with her putting a bully in his place! I can't wait to use this book with my reading buddies and have them write their own stories! " said.

" My favorite part of this book was the illustrations. The pictures are messy enough to hold a realistic factor. My next favorite thing was Miss's creativity when she comes up with her own story about how to get rid of her hat stealing nemesis, Billy Toomey. This book has big words that many kids likely aren't familiar with, so it can help expand a child's vocabulary a little. The story has a victorious ending for Missy. " said.

" "'Good readers make wonderful storytellers,' said Miss Brooks."When the lights go out on story time, Miss Brooks encourages her students to tell tales instead. "Let's close our eyes and let our minds wander. Everyone has a tale to tell." So Missy begins "An ogre lives down the street from me ..." And she spins such a tale of terror that she frightens the bully away. "It was a revolting tale with a happy ending. And I made it up myself."A fun story to encourage young writers. " said.

" Miss Brooks’ Story Nook would be a great picture book to use in the classroom to teach students about the elements in a story.To read the rest of the review, simply follow the link: " said.

" I loved Miss Brooks Loves Books! and have read it to the kids at the library for story time, and we just received this new one in from Barbara Bottner. This is a cute little book about reading, libraries, and bullies. Plus, it includes the word Vexing. This is my type of kids book! I highly recommend it. (but not for the super duper little, or kids who might be afraid of ogres and children eating snakes!) " said.

" So where do the ideas from stories come from? Miss Brooks' Story Nook is a great read aloud for teaching and talking about ideas for stories-- getting them started, keeping them going and finding the right ending. In the end, we see the power of stories to change less than desirable circumstances in one's life. Bottner and Emberly did the companion book Miss Brooks Loves Books about the need for choice and good fit books. Both titles have a place in a primary readers/writers workshop. " said.

" In Miss Brooks' story nook, everyone is welcome and Missy is excited to go. But when she has to pass the school bully's house to get there, she may need help to stop the Billy the bully from bullying her anymore.Missy gets help in a way that puts her in charge of whether she is bullied or not. Fantastic picture book written by Barbara Bottner and illustrated by Michael Emberley. Published by Knopf Books for Young Readers.#PB #bullying #problemsolving #creative " said.

"Four years ago author Barbara Bottner and illustrator Michael Emberley introduced readers to a first grade student in Miss Brooks Love Books! (and I don't) who had a tough time finding a book for the Book Week celebration, but she did. When it came to warts, snorting and a particularly dreadful ogre, it was true love. Missy and her school librarian have returned in Miss Brooks' Story Nook (where tales are told and ogres are welcome!)(Alfred A. Knopf).

My full recommendation:
