How to Read a Book by Kwame Alexander

How to Read a Book by Kwame Alexander is a delightful picture book that promotes a love of reading. It takes us on a poetic and sensory journey about the experiences we have when reading.

After picking up a book he tells us to “dig your thumb at the bottom of each juicy section and pop the words out… Squeeze every morsel of each plump line until the last drop of magic drips from the infinite sky.” A wonderful message wrapped up in a vibrant book for children of all ages.
