Best-selling author and illustrator Barbara Reid has created a colourful celebration of the pleasures of reading to babies and young children, anytime and anywhere. Warm and detailed plasticine illustrations of adults and children reading together join with bouncy, rhythmic verse to invite children and parents to share the joy of reading indoors and out, at any time of day! The perfect gift for new parents, Read Me a Book reminds us that reading to young children is key to the development of literacy and the enjoyment of learning — plus the simple text also makes it great for kids just learning to read back to their parents.
Barbara Reid is one of Canada's leading illustrator/authors, and the creator of such bestsellers as The Subway Mouse, Read Me a Book and Two by Two. Her books have won every major children's book award, and in 1988 she became the first Canadian to win the UNICEF-Ezra Jack Keats International Award for Excellence in Children's Book Illustration.
