This collection is a celebration of reading. I like that the poems also touch on other things kids experience like class pets and books where characters die. The poems are lyrical and often matter of fact. They beg to be read aloud. Read! Read! Read! reminds me of how much I love reading.
My favorite poems are Cereal Box, Word Collection, Forever, and In Love.
The illustrations are bright, colorful, and true to life...the kids look like kids. My favorite illustration is Googling Guinea Pigs.
