That Book Woman BSW1209

US$19.95

Cal is not the readin' type. Living way high up in the Appalachian Mountains, he'd rather help Pap plow or go out after wandering sheep than try some book learning. Nope. Cal does not want to sit stoney-still reading some chicken scratch. But that Book Woman keeps coming just the same. She comes in the rain. She comes in the snow. She comes right up the side of the mountain, and Cal knows that's not easy riding. And all just to lend his sister some books. Why, that woman must be plain foolish -- or is she braver than he ever thought?  

这是一本根据美国真实历史事件改编的图画书。在20世纪30年代的美国经济大萧条时期,罗斯福政府为了推广阅读,曾经采用骑马送书的方式解决对偏远地区的阅读支持问题。女图书馆员坚持送书,每两周一次,不取分文。哪怕山路崎岖,哪怕寒风暴雪,她依旧如期而至,步履不停。住在高山上的小男孩卡尔原本对书不感兴趣,却被女图书馆员的坚忍意志所打动,在她的影响下开始阅读,爱上读书,看到了大山外面的广阔世界。以此致敬孩子身边所有的送书人。因为有了书,才有了幸福的种子,也才有了照亮未来的光。

By Heather Henson, Illustrated by David Small, Hardcover, Simplified or Traditional Chinese characters with Zhuyin, 40 pages, 8.5"x10.6"
