Another Utah author rises to the top. If you are in the market for a book about:
                                Strong women
                                The power of an individual
                                Importance of books
                                Being true to yourself
                                Making a difference
This is your book. Or if you are just in the mood for a great story and an uplifting read aloud, this is your book.
Miss Moore is Anne Carroll Moore is one of many librarians who opened the world of libraries to children. Her position at the New York Public Library and her serious attention to children’s books set a precedent for many to follow. I love the title! The very idea that sometimes you need to “think otherwise” is a tremendous message for children today. 
Read this and then hug a librarian!

Jan Pinborough lives in Salt Lake City. She is managing editor of The Friend, a magazine for children.
