Just Read! (Hardcover)
On Our Shelves Now
These kids all love to read--alone or together, on a bus or in a parade. And every time they open a book, they open up a whole new world, too
"A delightful tribute to reading anything and everything all the time. . . . There's something for everyone." --Booklist
"A chipper, colorful celebration of the limitless possibilities for what, where, and when one can read." --Publishers Weekly
Learning to read is a big accomplishment, and this exuberant picture book celebrates reading in its many forms. In lively rhyme, it follows a diverse group of word-loving children who grab the opportunity to read wherever and whenever they can. They read while waiting and while sliding or swinging; they read music and in Braille and the signs on the road. And, sometimes, they even read together, in a special fort they've built. The colorful, fanciful art and rollicking text will get every child more excited about reading.
