A simple celebration of a major milestone: learning to read! It will take a lot of hard work: learning the letters, turning the pages, saying the words. But that hard work will pay off maybe sooner than this little boy thinks! Dynamic illustrations add to this sweet story of a young boy and his desire to read, ending with a hopeful message to toddlers that someday, they can be readers too!”
I really want to like this book, because I’m a huge proponent of reading, so it seemed like a good premise… but this fell a little flat for me.
