KIRKUS REVIEW

A flat and square gift yielding a brand-new book turns out to be all the entertainment that one young boy needs for a full day of fun. Even when he has finished looking at the pictures and reading it, the boy discovers many other things to do: “I can read you to the cat / or upside down, or maybe / wear you like a hat!” The exuberance of the last few pages will have young listeners shouting along with this little guy. “We’ll read you warm and snug, / Book! / I’ll give you a hug, Book! / Open wide. / Look inside. / Book!” Vibrantly colored illustrations are ideal for young readers with great washes of color and bold lines that bleed off the edge of the heavy, card-stock pages. A treat that will have everyone who hears it enjoying his or her own books just a little bit more, as well as inspiring the newbies. (Picture book. 2-4)
