Read Me A Book

Written & Illustrated by Barbara Reid. Scholastic Canada

Tell me a story, read me a book… Babies love books, sharing books with your child every day will open up a world of fun and learning. Bouncy verse and delightful illustrations of babies and children reading make this a great place to start. Soon your own child will be asking you to Read Me a Book!

Read Me A Book was initially commissioned by the Government of Ontario’s Early Learning Initiative and was distributed to newborn children across the province. Original artwork from Read Me a Book was presented to the Toronto Public Library Foundation and is displayed in various branches throughout Toronto.

****/4 As very young children move from board books to regular picture books, one of the first they should encounter should be Read Me a Book… Because early years teachers know how important children’s preschool experiences with books are in terms of their later success in learning how to read, teachers and teacher-librarians should take the lead in promoting this book in their communities. Highly recommended.

Read Me a Book will help you and your child start on a lifelong tradition of reading together. It’s a great way not only for your child to learn to read, but a valuable chance for you to spend time and learn about your child during these crucial first years of life.
