It’s been a while since I’ve done a Book Birthday post on the blog, and today’s is extra special. My good friend Janet Sumner Johnson’s debut picture book HELP WANTED MUST LOVE BOOKS is out in the world today and it is adorable and amazing!!
Shailey loves bedtime, especially reading with her dad. But her dad starts a new job, and it gets in the way of their bedtime routine. So Shailey takes action! She fires her dad, posts a Help Wanted sign, and starts interviews immediately. She is thrilled when her favorite characters from fairytales line up to apply. But Sleeping Beauty can’t stay awake, the Gingerbread Man steals her book, and Snow White brings along her whole team. Shailey is running out of options. Is bedtime ruined forever?
See, adorable, just like I promised in my Goodreads review:
A sweet and funny read that both kids and adults will enjoy.
A solid story, great illustrations, and a host of fun characters make this a must for anyone’s picture book shelf. The resumes at the end were a perfect and adorable touch. I’m looking forward to more from this author.
Head over to your local independent bookstore or to one of these online vendors to pick up a copy of HELP WANTED MUST LOVE BOOKS.
