Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile

Miss Dorothy and Her Bookmobile - Gloria Houston, Susan Condie Lamb Gloria Houston tells the true story of one of her personal heroes, Dorothy Thomas. Dorothy wanted to be a librarian in a big brick library, but instead her husband wanted to live in the country where there was no library. So Dorothy created a bookmobile that traveled from place to place and brought books to people who had no books.Each paragraph is like a small poem. Each illustration is like a small poem. A beautiful little story of service.“If her readers could not come to the bookmobile, Miss Dorothy took books to them. When elderly Mrs. Maumey had read all her books, she hung her husband’s red flannel drawers on the line, and Miss Dorothy climbed the hill with more books to share with her reading friend.”
