Miss Moore Thought Otherwise

Miss Moore Thought Otherwise written by Jan Pinborough and illustrated by Debby Atwell is a book my sister told me about.  This picture book biography is about how Anne Carroll Moore influenced the development of libraries for children.  Moore lived in an era when libraries were not for children and worked to change that.  The book is appropriate for elementary aged children or any adult who has a passion for books and libraries.  Reading the book to older elementary children would give them insight into how things change.  Moore is also a good example of a person who initiated change and had a positive impact on the world.  The book's website adds to the story of Anne Carroll Moore by showing photographs of things referenced in the book.
