It is Read Across America Day and Principal Sam wants to go and listen to the librarian reading fairy tales to the students in the children's storybook Principal Sam and the Three Bears by Paul Semendinger, Ed.D. Principal Sam is standing outside the library and greeting the students when Mrs. Travers, the librarian, tells him that the fairy tales in the library have been misplaced. Principal Sam decides to help and sits on his special reading chair. He decides to tell the story of Little Red Riding Hood and Mrs. Travers tells him that he has mixed up the details once he finishes telling the story. The kindergarten students like Principal Sam’s story better than the real one. He mixes up the stories for the other grades too. Will Mrs. Travers find the misplaced books and read out a proper story for the children?

It is a delightful tale and will put a smile on the young reader’s face. The story is simple and adorable and the illustrations do full justice to the characters and the scenes. The book encourages storytelling and can be used in classrooms and school libraries for read aloud and storytelling sessions. It is a good bedtime story book for parents and grandparents to read out to their children and grandchildren. Storytelling is an important part of growing up and it is important for children to learn about fairy tales and the characters in those stories. Reading this book will encourage them to get acquainted with more fairy tales and the adorable characters in them.
