Miss Moore Thought Otherwise: How Anne Carroll Moore Created Libraries for Children

Jan Pinborough, illus. by Debby Atwell. Houghton Mifflin, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-547-47105-1
Pinborough debuts with a biography of children’s advocate and librarian Moore (1871–1961), celebrated for her pioneering work in making libraries and library services accessible to (and fun for) kids. The author has selected highlights from Moore’s life—her belief in letting children touch and borrow books, her ascent to the head of children’s services for the New York Public Library—and streamlined them into a concise, breezy chronology. Atwell’s folk-art style acrylics capture a sense of history in the making, as well as the book’s themes of excitement and change. Information on Moore and other trailblazing librarians is included in endnotes. Ages 6–9. (Mar.)
