1 Alice had been trying to choose a new book to read all day. There were just too many books, though. She wanted to read all of them. Which one would be the best?
2 She asked her teacher. Her teacher told her to ask the librarian. The librarian gave her a list of good books. There were one hundred books on the list. That did not help. That just made it harder to choose just one book.
3 Alice had a stack of books on her desk. She was so sleepy. She started to put her head down. All of a sudden, one of the books said, "Read me. You will like me best." It was A Visitor for Bear talking! But books don't talk, do they?
4 "I am a story about a strange friendship between a bear and a mouse. At first the bear does not like the mouse. They become friends later."
5 "No, read me," Stinky said. "I am about a swamp monster that lives in a dirty, bad-smelling swamp. Stinky finds out that boys are not always clean!"
6 "No, read me first," Goose and Duck said. "I tell about a goose that thinks a boy is his mother and a duck that thinks the goose is his mother. Both of them follow the boy around for a long time."
7 "If you like birds, read me," Bird said. "My story is about a boy who became known as Bird because he loved to draw birds."
8 All of the books started talking at once. "Read me. Read me. Read me," they all said. It got noisier and noisier.
9 Alice could not stand the noise. "Hush!" she said loudly. "Now all of you settle down. I cannot hear all of you at one time."
