Review for Help Wanted, Must Love Books

Colourful, Bookshelves, Help Wanted: Must Love Books, Children's Books, Girl, Books, Picture Books,Janet Sumner Johnson, Courtney Dawson I received this picture book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

A little girl who LOVES bedtime stories needs a new storyteller when her dad works so hard he just falls asleep early on in the evening or when he is too hard at work. Instead of wallowing she fires her dad (yes, really) and then starts hunting for new people to tell stories to her. I just loved her posting a poster to find a new storyteller and then adding more and more to it as the day grew long (seeing the additions to the poster were tons of fun especially since the girl kept it colourful).

I have to say I didn’t expect the applicants to be THAT or be about THAT. So that was a fun surprise, I won’t spoil anything as I want people to be surprised as well. I enjoyed seeing what kind of people who apply and what kind of skills they had. Not to mention, I wanted to know if the little girl would find someone to tell her stories at bedtime.

The ending was just the sweetest, that was the best applicant, but yeah, there needs to be some conditions for it to work out. 😛

Oh, and the CVs from the ones who applied in the book were just a wonderful addition, really glad the author added those to the book. I had quite a laugh reading those.

I love the art it was just the cutest!

All in all, a very sweet bedtime story that I am sure will be loved by parents and children. Recommended!
