PreS-Gr 3–In a lovely salute to the power of reading, brief text meets exquisitely drawn pen and ink illustrations, brushed with a wash of purple. Stewart and Small showcase individuals of various ages interacting with books and include visuals of the shoes-off, stockings-only comfort of those deeply lost in their books, a baby chewing a tasty cover, or a reader taking a deep sniff inside a well-loved work. Whether it’s reading aloud to an invisible crowd or finding pleasure while reading on a sandy beach, book lovers everywhere are encouraged to remember their own book friendship, a small “treasure for a lifetime” and a celebration of the devoted relationship between reader and book.
VERDICT Bibliophiles unite. This is a glorious first-purchase for all libraries

I love her work, especially “The Library” - she and David Small are a great pair!
