Remember me? I’ve come back to tell you another story that the library books told me. Our story today is about a wonderful science book named Michelle.
Michelle had an exciting life as a juvenile science book. She spent most of her time helping children with their science fair projects. One summer, there was an exceptionally excited group of kids who came to the Library in search of books to take to their summer science camps. A few children looked through Michelle’s pages; one child even carried her around the library for a while. Michelle was sure she’d be checked out but was disappointed when the child’s mother stated that he could only check out a small number of books. The boy put Michelle onto the shelf he was standing next to, settling Michelle between books she’d never seen before, and then he left. Michelle panicked, she was not where she was supposed to be, how was anyone supposed to find her now? She cried her little eyes out and then settled into a rhythm of humming to herself to keep calm. Michelle was among the knitting books, who were a very kind lot. They gently comforted her and assured her that she would be found before too long. At least I’m among the knitting books, they’re friendly, Michelle thought to herself. The library workers had noticed that Michelle was missing; they put her on a special list of books to remind themselves to look for her everywhere. They looked and looked but couldn’t find her anywhere. The library workers were about to give up when one of them finally found her on the shelf among the knitting books. Michelle was so happy to finally be found and the librarians were happy to get her checked in and back to her proper place.
