Help Wanted, Must Love Books by Janet Sumner Johnson tells the story of Shailey whose dad used to be her bedtime storyteller until he got a new job. Now she is on the hunt for a recruit.
Shailey is a bright and determined young child who posts a job announcement and begins interviewing fairy tale characters. She has to revise her job advertisement each time a new character applies as they either fall asleep, leave dirty fingerprints on her books, or scare her.
Help Wanted is a delightful book with incredible illustrations. The story was perfect with great imagination and provided a valid lesson for parents to put down their electronic devices and be present for their children.
What I loved and thought brilliant was how the author weaved the characters and synopses of bedtime stories into this story.
