Library Bag Fave: MISS MOORE THOUGHT OTHERWISE by Debby Atwell

5 of 5 Stars to Miss Moore Thought Otherwise or How Anne Carroll Moore Created Libraries for Children by Jan Pinborough and illustrated by Debby Atwell     Did you know that children were not allowed to go into libraries in the late 1800's? "People didn't think reading was very important for children - especially not for girls." Also, some libraries were not free. This book tells the story of a girl who didn't follow the rules and became one of the founding champions for libraries and the right for children to use them.We, who love children and books, owe a debt to Anne Carroll Moore who made sure that yesterday's and today's children have access to the wonderful world of books.
