What's not to love about a book about loving books?! I Love a Book is adorable! This book could singlehandedly grow a new generation of bookworms, introducing them to the portable magic found between pages. I would have loved reading this as a child and was delighted reading it as an adult. While other adults have coffee table books that make them seem more cultured than they probably are, my coffee table books consist of children's books and I look forward to adding this one to them. The words flow so well and the illustrations complement the poetry beautifully. The illustrations are extraordinary! Brightly coloured and detailed, they captured my imagination. Each time I look at a page I see something new. There are stories to be discovered in each of the illustrations. I both want to tell those stories and hear from children the adventures they see taking place on each page. Thank you very much to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group - Moonlight Press for the opportunity to read this book. I'd happily recommend this book for child and adult bookworms alike.
This book is full of amazing illustrations demonstrating the magic of books. The story is told in rhyming format with the narrator describing what he reads and why he reads. This is a great book to read with young children (JK/SK) to demonstrate how imagination, travel and other worlds are opened up with books. A great book for any library, public, school, classroom and home
