Learning how to read is exciting for many youngsters, but there is so much competition for attention from tablets, video games, social media, etc. Young readers need encouragement to shut out some of the distractions and learn how to enjoy time spent reading. As a teacher, I was always looking for ways to provide kids with time to choose their own books and READ! This awesome picture book uses bouncy, rhyming text and gorgeous illustrations that have a rich, retro feel to them to celebrate all the different ways books and reading can be enjoyed. Now that springtime is here, there are going to be more opportunities to get out of the house and read in different ways and places. This could be a great read aloud to encourage that. It could also generate a good discussion about all of the good times and places for reading. For example, our local transit company is now working with the local library to provide books to read on the busses. I'm all for any book that can get young people interested in reading!
