Beatrice Doesn’t Want To by Laura Numeroff

This book was a good book. At first, when I looked at the title, I thought this book was going to be about a child who didn’t want to do chores or who didn’t want to do what her parents told her to do. But, this book was actually about how she didn’t like to…READ!! How horrible? But I could relate to this book. Also, I was thinking about the students who would be in our classroom who might have english difficulties and can’t read and they get frustrated. If they get frustrated, then they need help cultivating that like or love for reading. It just takes one tiny teacher to make a huge improvement on a child’s life.

Beatrice does not enjoy reading or anything to do with books. She is forced to go to the library with her brother Henry, while he works on a school project. Throughout Beatrice’s journey in the library her catch phase is ‘I don’t want to.’ Beatrice soon enters the children’s area where she realizes that she truly loves books after all. When Henry is done at the library he realizes his sister doesn’t want to leave, she even refuses to leave by saying ‘I don’t want to.’ I believe this book would be great to read to Kindergarteners who aren’t used to using the school library. It brings comedy through the authors word choice to show that even if we don’t think we like books, we can find a fun way to make the library enjoyable. There was quite a bit of dialogue throughout the book that could get confusing to Kindergarteners but the lesson and meaning of the book is beneficial for this age. It’s a reading level of a 2.2 so I would recommend it to 1st-3rd grade…
