Booklist - 03/01/2019 Just read! It could be a command, a suggestion, or a declaration of accomplishment. Either way, this lively book is a delightful tribute to reading anything and everything all the time. The solitary act of reading is recast as a venture into worlds of people and lives far different from our own: “I read with an astronaut, pirate or farmer / I read with a clown or a knight wearing armor.” Jaunty rhyming couplets bounce around the pages as the children in the illustrations read books, magazines, hand signs, road signs, maps, sheet music, and Braille. Vibrant watercolor illustrations are used to full effect, so that washes of blue transport a girl reading about sharks into a tropical seascape, and a boy reading about tigers sees the big cat’s fiery coat leaping from a pile of fall leaves. The diversity of reading material is matched by the diversity of readers, contexts, and interests. There’s something for everyone; there’s no holding back—just read! - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
