These kids all love to read–and every time they open a book, they open up a whole new world! This exuberant story celebrates reading as it follows a diverse group of children who read wherever and whenever they can. Sometimes, they even read together, in a special fort they’ve built. Victoria Tentler-Krylov’s fanciful art and Lori Degman’s rollicking text will get every child excited about reading!
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.
Lori Degman is the author of <i>1 Zany Zoo </i>(Simon & Schuster), <i>Cock-a-Doodle Oops! </i>(Creston Books), <i>Norbert’s Big Dream </i>(Sleeping Bear Press), and the upcoming <i>Like a Girl </i>(Sterling). Lori was a teacher of deaf and hard-of-hearing students and is now a full-time author. She lives near Chicago, IL, with her husband, two grown sons (when they come to visit), and pets.<br /> <br /> Victoria Tentler-Krylov grew up in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and studied architecture and urban design at Cooper Union and Columbia University.
