B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
5.0 / 7.0

This book shows all the variety that can come with reading (from characters, to when you read, to reading code or brail). I love the busy, bold illustrations that feature diverse characters.
