READ ANYTHING GOOD LATELY? by Susan Allen
ABC BOOKS
Released: March 1, 2003

A child's question prompts another's alphabetic reverie in this invitation to consider the many things and places to read: an atlas <\b>at the airport<\b>, a biography <\b>in bed<\b>, a gossip <\b>magazine in the grocery <\b>line, and on up to a zodiac <\b>(i.e., horoscope) at the zoo<\b>. The authors give non-paper media a nod, too, with information <\b>on the Internet<\b>, and leave the exercise open-ended with a closing list of additional types of reading material for readers to match with locations. In page-sized cartoons, Enright follows her smiling young bookworm from place to place, showing her reading alone and with company, indoors and out, up a tree, even in a Jacuzzi. Serving as a reminder to parents too, that reading opportunities are all around, this presents an engaging literary game likely to continue well beyond one pass through the ABCs.
