Reading Makes You Feel Good

Summary:

This is an imaginative book that explores how reading can empower you (man, woman, adult, child).


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

This is a well-written, simple story. The message that the author (and his publisher) care about helping kids read is bright and clear.

Content Awareness Factors:

The only advantage for reading that Parr misses in this simple but well-written story is that reading prepares one for writing better.


Little Kid Reaction

reviewer did not read with a child

Adult Reader Reaction

The illustrations are in Crayola® colors and remind me of the bright little cut-out puzzles from Europe made with wood. [You know, good Danish or Swedish design.] Each picture-page includes not only the story narrative but pictures of things with words in them. That association between words and how they can label objects is a subtle message for toddlers and beginning readers.

Type of Book:
This is a picture book that celebrates the joy of reading.
Educational Themes:

This one is quite straight forward: reading is fun. It's a great starting point for encouraging a positive outlook toward reading.
