One of the best parts about reading is how it opens the whole world. You might not be able to travel to France but you can read all about it. With a good book the author will paint the picture for your mind so that you will see the cobbled streets and smell the fresh bread baking. You'll hear the sounds of music and conversations. I've told my kids how reading will take them places, teach them lessons and help them have adventures but I don't think my eight year old understood until he read The Big Book Adventure. The way Emily Ford and Tim Warnes have the little pig and fox share what they read puts words and pictures to what I've been telling him.
J-man was excited to see many stories we knew on the pages in fact it sparked an interest in reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Next school year will we read aloud my favorite book The Secret Garden (which I have read at least fifty times as a child.
This book was an adorable addition to our home library. The story of sharing books not only physically but talking about what you read really was a nice lesson. As an avid reader I love seeing my child excited about books and this book really had my son talking about what we should read next so that was a big hit for me.
