    One of our favorites!

    We picked this up at the library a few months back and my three year old daughter just LOVED it. She quickly learned all of the words (the first time she had done this) so we just HAD to get a copy of our own. This book is so sweet. It has a nice variety of vocabulary words and a fun varying story line. The illustrations are eye catching and beautiful. Sam truly is "Born To Read" and illustrates this fact as he uses books to learn new things and solve problems, from diagnosing a mysterious "illness" to winning a bike race. This little boy truly does read everywhere, and as he faces a baby giant, Sam bravely uses a variety of familiar and best loved children's books to distract the baby giant and get him home to his mommy. The story ends reminding children that Sam (as well as they) can grow up to be just about anything because "Readers can go anyplace"

    Great Read-a-loud Book!

    I read this book to the children at my son's elementary school (K-3) during our Parents as Reading Partners program. It has a wonderful message and the kids loved seeing the illustrations of books they were already familiar with. It's very sweet and it will be one of our favorites that we'll keep forever.

    Born to Read Encourages to Read

    This book is a little lengthy (40 pages) for a beginner reader and a lot of the words are complex. However, the message that readers can do anything is an overall positive lesson for children from kindergarten to third grade. Colorful illustrations make this a fun book.
