Just Read is a picture book with vivid watercolor like illustrations. Victoria Tentler-Krylov’s bold and illustrations draw the eyes of the reader to the pages. The simple rhyming lines are easy to read and to understand. It flows so well! Lori Degman encourages children to read. They can read on their own or read with someone by their side. They can read with many characters such as a pirate, penguin or bear. They explore new and different places. Children can read anywhere and at any time whether it is on the grass outside on a nice day or on a train during a rain storm.

Just Read doesn’t set limitations to reading; reading is accessible for all types of people. The picture book tells a story of how every one can read no matter who they are. There is something for everyone. This celebration of reading is important in this age. Just Read encourages children that there is no right or wrong way to read.

Just Read is a book for everyone and celebrates diversity. The illustrations depict people of various race, ethnicities and abilities in various weather and climates. Degman describes how a person can read. They can read traditionally through words on page or on a sign. Some people can read by touch via braille. People can even read through listening and they can read through signing. I love how the book ends with a little free library image that says "take a book, leave a book!"
