The Children Who Loved Books

The Children Who Loved Books
Written and illustrated by Peter Carnavas
Tulsa, Oklahoma:  Kane Miller Books, 2013, Ages 3-6

This story is about a family that loves books. The author uses simple words. There is cause for anticipation when sentences end with ellipsis. The illustrations are bright, colorful and realistic. 

It was hard to find meaning in this book besides that reading can be a fun hobby. The author's purpose is unclear. I would only recommend this for children that love books. It may be an aid to teaching why reading is important even though it doesn't directly state why reading is beneficial. The text is short making it an easy read for beginner readers.
