I had to write about this book right after our bedtime read tonight because it was just SO cute! Just Read!, written by Lori Degman and illustrated by Victoria Tentler-Krylov is a rhyming book that goes through all the reasons, ways, and places that you can read!
This book made my daughter realize that reading while in the grocery store was an option, made my son wish that he had a pool with aquatic animals he could read in, and made me envy this family’s car:
Just Read! could bring about some great conversations with kiddos about everything that is considered reading (the kid in the grocery store was reading a cookbook) and what could be considered missed opportunities for reading (waiting at the doctor’s office). The illustrations in this book are wonderful, and reflect a wide variety of families, kids, and ethnicities. It was a quick read, but very inspiring for those kids who have just started to be able to read independently. Even though my kids have been able to do that for quite some time, it was still a very enjoyable read for the three of us!
