A Place to Read

A Place to Read Review

When I want to read,
what I really, really need,
is a place to sit . . .
just for a bit.

Somewhere comfy, NOT itchy-fuzzy, somewhere quiet, NOT buzz-buzzy.

The little reader in this book is having a hard time finding the ideal reading spot. Everywhere has noise, or smells, or is too hot or cold . . . and our reader finds himself with lots of company in each reading spot he considers.

But soon we discover the truth about reading books: A book is best anywhere . . . a book is best when you SHARE.

Join one small book lover's search for the perfect place to read in this beautifully illustrated picture book by the talented Leigh Hodgkinson.

Title:A Place to Read
