This is a celebration of books, reading, and our imaginations, I Love a Book opens with a list of types of books and where to find them. The simple, lyrical prose then becomes more frantic as a young reader encounters pirates sailing the sea, a classroom of monsters “learning math with their paws,” and even an animal doctor making house calls in a helicopter.
With lavish illustrations nearly spilling off the page, the young reader finally reaches the end of an exhausting day, ready for bed … and more books. This book is for anyone who loves books and wants to instill this passion in the next generation.
This is easily one of the most wondrous and beautiful books about how magical reading can be I’ve seen in a while. The story and eye catching illustrations reminded me of the joy Reading Rainbow used to instill so that you wanted to immediately pick up a book and be a part of the adventure.
If you have a child who can’t seem to understand why reading is important this is a fantastic opportunity to show them what awaits for them between the pages.
If you have a voracious reader already this is a great reminder of how they became that way and how many other paths there are still to explore.
It’s perfect for libraries, classrooms, and the home; just everywhere in order to encourage reading. It’s easily one of my favorite books I’ve read with my kids lately and it helped us come up with a new list of topics to explore. I can’t get over how beautiful and fun this was, the way it captured the enchanting reason reading is so important in just a few pages.
Thank you to Netgalley and Moondance Press for allowing me to review this book.
