Beatrice is particularly uninterested in books and reading - until she is forced to go to the library with her brother, Henry, who has to work on a school project there. Beatrice's catchphrase is "I don't want to." Henry takes her to the children's room - Beatrice is very impressed with a reading she witnesses there and realizes that she really does love books after all. In the end, Henry cannot get his sister to leave the library!
