I absolutely love this book! I'm studying to become a teacher and I love how the book explains in a non-intimidating a easy to follow way how a book becomes a book. Great to use in the classroom if you want to do a book project with kids. It can get a little distracting and confusing because of the captions so it's not recommended for readers younger than 9. Other than that great book!!!

I bought this book for my 8 year old son who hated writing.....it really helped change his attitude towards the task.  It is funny and informative  at the same time, I agree that all children should have this book at home!!!! Amantina NYC
