Reviews from Around the World “My kids loved hearing all the different, silly things you can do with a book, but they loved reading it the most.” - Lauren Waters, Goodreads
“Fred Benaglia’s illustrations pop to the eyes right in the front cover as an invitation to read it— and it is worth it. Barney Saltzberg writes about the many, many, many ways we interact with (our) books, how they permeate our daily lives, sometimes even without us noticing. The fact that we take them to eat, that we smell them, write on them and even fall asleep with them is a reason for any book lover to identify with this. For young and older bookworms alike, this book is a joyful finding.” - Thabata, Goodreads
